Bloggers Campaign for Jill Carroll

Below is a plea for all of us to stand together as one voice and one prayer to bring Jill Carroll home safely and alive.
Jill Carroll, a freelance reporter working for the Christian Science Monitor newspaper, was kidnapped in Baghdad over two months ago. All indications are that she is still alive. The Monitor has started a campaign, using Iraqi television, to distribute a video asking for Iraqis to help find and free Jill.

Jill is not a blogger but she's got that spirit. She's an independent intellect who is fascinated by the world and has a desire to speak what she sees. So let's not leave it up to the newspapers and television stations. She's ours as much as theirs.

So, I would like to ask every blogger who gives a damn about individual human life and the individual human voice, to post a link to this video on their blog, to blog about Jill and to pass along our concern to friends, family and other bloggers. Of greatest import are Iraqi blogs and blogs in the Arabic and Muslim worlds that may be read by people in a position to do good for Jill.

Here's a link to the Jill Carroll video.

Let's tag these posts "blogjill."

Please write something on your site to let the world know we care about everyone who dares to follow their dream; be it to help, to save, to fight, to bring peace through strength, to bring stability through force, etc. Let us all stand together against that which is wrong, and let us all stand up for that which is right. Let us not forget, "There is a difference, and you can make it."
