Malala Yousafzai Update
Keep the prayers coming for 14-year-old Malala Yousafzai, they’re working. Malala Yousafzai became a national hero in Pakistan when she stood up to the Taliban and blogged in favor of girls being able to go to school. But several cowardly Taliban gunmen attacked her school bus and shot Malala in the head and neck. They threatened that if she lived, they’d attack her again because she’s spreading “secular ideas.” Their religion apparently frowns on letting girls go to school, but approves of murdering them. Monday, Malala was flown to England for surgery, but also to get her 4,000 miles away from Pakistan. Even there, people claiming to be her relatives showed up at the hospital, but were detained by police as a precaution. The good news: she’s not fully conscious, but latest word is she’s out of her coma and appears to have no paralysis, and, unlike her attackers, no brain damage.
