Stop the killing of innocents in Darfur

Auschwitz, Rwanda, Bosnia, now Darfur.

Darfur is facing genocide. Already, 400,000 people have been killed, and more than 2 million are in refugee camps. Torture, rape and murder of civilians are occurring because of civil war. The United Nations must send peacekeeping troops, and the Sudanese government is sending mixed messages as to whether it will accept such troops. The peacekeeping force already in Darfur is in urgent need of funds. Our efforts thus far are not enough to prevent the murder of countless innocents.

I urge readers to do their own research and contact their congressmen. We cannot allow people in a faraway country to die en masse again.
