As we sit down to groaning Thanksgiving tables, please take a moment to the people suffering and dying in Darfur and the neighboring nations of Chad and the Central African Republic. If you haven't been following the details of the continuing crimes being committed there, check the writing of the heroic Nicholas Kristoff of The New York Times.
Take a few minutes to send an email to the White House (whitehouse.gov), your senators (senate.gov) and congressman (house.gov), telling them to take action to reverse the ongoing tragedy in central Africa. Then send another email to each of them the next day. And the next. And the day after that, until the situation is reversed.
