The kidnapping made headlines worldwide, and several countries, including the United States, promised to help bring the girls back to their families. But as Mariama Diallo reports, the girls are still missing, and advocates for their return are growing frustrated.

My husband and I are appalled at how long it has taken for the girls to be rescued. The Boko Haram's activities are absolutely unconscionable. Had this happened anywhere in the Western world, there would have been an outcry that would last indefinitely until they were brought home. Whatever our countries can do to retrieve them, we must do. This experience will ruin them psychologically forever.
