Darfur … add your name …

Stephen Shields at Emergesque offers information and links encouraging us to be heard. Darfur needs our voices – and our e-mails to the President! I sent mine and forwarded the information to friends. Jump on board and do the same. Below is the text of the message. Thanks Stephen.

" We come to you from across the evangelical spectrum. We beseech you
to act on your faith and do the right thing by leading the world to
stop the genocide affecting "the least of these" in Darfur. To date,
more than 400,000 people have been killed. 2.5 million displaced.
Countless more have been raped, maimed, and tortured: Men, women, and
children created in God’s image, innocents all. Ending the atrocities
will require your personal leadership in supporting the deployment of a
strong U.N. peacekeeping force and multilateral economic sanctions.
While we often disagree on matters of politics, we are united in the
belief that your intervention can make the critical difference in
Darfur. We join together now to urge you, in the words of Proverbs
24:11-12, to "rescue those being led away to death." We pledge to do
everything we can to rally support in both Congress and the U.N. to
support your leadership in ending the horror in Darfur. "
