Yet Another One, Gul Meena

Gul Meena

I am getting a little tired of posting these stories, day after day. Honor killings and fifteen year old girls. Enraged brothers who wield primitive weapons. Today’s is a poor girl named Gul Meena:

It is doubly miraculous that the young woman named Gul Meena is alive. After she was struck by an ax 15 times, slashing her head and face so deeply that it exposed her brain, she held on long enough to reach medical care and then, despite the limitations of what the doctors could do, clung to life.

God bless you, Gul. One day, women in Afghanistan will be treated as sisters and mothers.
