Ashley Grill commented on the blog post 'Vanessa Kachadurian #BringOurGirlsHome plight of 300 kidnapped Nigerian Girls'
"As a mother, I can't help but wonder, what if by some fate or luck I was born in Nigeria.  To not demand #bringourgirlshome is to side with indifference and let dominant oppression win.   Today I was in the kitchen putting away the…"

So early that the bar tender hadn't yet turned on the neon red sign that hangs above the stoop.  There was a group standing and smoking blocking the doorway.
