International Women’s Day 2012

It’s been one hundred and three years since the first International Women’s Day was observed in the United States. Today around the world men and women will join hands in solidarity, peace and equality.

As of today, Rossella Urru has been held hostage in Algeria for 138 days, 8 hours, and 41 minutes.

FREEDOM FOR ROSSELLA URRU

Rossella Urru

When you reflect on the women in your life today, please take a moment to say a prayer for those women, in 2012, who have had their freedom so brutally taken.

138 days held hostage in Algeria. 138 days of uncertainty. Freedom for Rossella Urru!

Blessed be.
