I want to introduce you to a special young woman. Right now, she is in the midst of an uncertain and unthinkable storm. Her name is Leah Sharibu. In February, the Nigerian Islamic group, the Boko Haram, stormed Leah’s secondary school in the community of Dapchi, kidnapping Leah and 109 of her schoolmates. After a month in secret captivity, they were released…all but Leah.
