Good question. Jon Foreman of Switchfoot is actually going on a 3-day, water-only fast, starting today, to raise awareness for the people of Darfur.
"Can it be possible that right now, two and a half million people are waking up in ... refugee camps having been driven from their homes by violent means? Under the same sun, could it be true that almost half a million people have died of starvation, violence, and disease over the past six years in Darfur? And if this is true, why has the media remained almost completely silent on the issue? Why has our government maintained its current stance of inaction?"
