MichelleObamaBringBackOurGirls

Michelle Obama added her voice to the global campaign to bring home the missing Nigerian girls, who were kidnapped from their school on April 15.

The First Lady posted to Facebook and Twitter on Wednesday a photo of her holding a white sign with the hashtag #BringBackOurGirls written in black marker.

On Twitter, she signed it “-mo,” which means it was approved by FLOTUS herself.

The photo comes one day after President Obama said the U.S. was sending a team to Nigeria to assist in finding the missing girls, who were reportedly kidnapped by members of the Islamic militant group Boko Haram. (Its name means “Western education is forbidden.”)

The hashtag has been tweeted more than 1 million times as of Wednesday, with celebrities and politicians adding their voices to the global campaign, and is one of Facebook’s top trending topics.
