Re: 'All we are saying is bring back our girls' (May 12). There were two walks in Winnipeg on Mother's Day for missing girls. One was for the abducted school girls in Nigeria. The abduction of these young girls has been paramount in the media, and rightly so; it deserves our outrage and our prayers and our action.

But so does the parallel story of so many missing and murdered Canadian women. The other walk was the 10th annual Sisters in Spirit Mother's Day Walk for Missing and Murdered Women.

The Free Press didn't carry one word, picture, or heart-wrenching story of the families going through a similar experience of not knowing if their mothers, their daughters, or their aunts have been abducted, raped, tortured or murdered.
