I urge you to immediately issue forceful federal Congo Conflict Minerals regulations. We must help bring an end to the devastating war that is being fought on the bodies of women and children. It's shameful that by silence and apathy we have turned our backs on these Congolese families. Through silence we have condone the atrocities in the Congo and we must stop support this behavior. Please take an immediate stand to help these people. It's the ethical, moral and politically correct thing to do.
