Day for Darfur :: Never forget!

Today is the Global Day for Darfur where we are reminded that the horror in Darfur CONTINUES!
Thousands of people are still losing their lives...

Despite the signing of a Darfur peace agreement on 5 May 2006, the violence in western Sudan has not stopped; in fact, in some parts of Darfur, the violence has grown worse.

People are still being killed and raped and displaced - every single day.

On September 17 people around the world will take part in the Global Day for Darfur to show world-wide support for the Darfuri people and to put pressure on our Governments to protect the civilians.
I believe in action... we are told to act ::
Don't fool yourself into thinking that you are a listener when you are anything but, letting the Word go in one ear and out the other. Act on what you hear! Those who hear and don't act are like those who glance in the mirror, walk away, and two minutes later have no idea who they are, what they look like.
James 1: 22-24 (The Message)

I believe prayer is action... as important as writing to the Government and peacefully demonstrating. Take time out to pray for Darfur... you may wish to follow Archbishop Desmond Tutu's prayer:

Whether you pray or not... do something... whatever you can do... but, most of all, don't forget!
