I'm sure most have read or heard of this story:
PESHAWAR, Pakistan (Reuters) - Pakistani surgeons removed a bullet on Wednesday from a 14-year-old girl shot by the Taliban for speaking out against the militants and promoting education for girls, doctors said.
Malala Yousufzai was in critical condition after gunmen shot her in the head and neck on Tuesday as she left school. Two other girls were also wounded.
The Taliban, called Islamist militants, claim the shooting. One must ask: "Can there be such a thing as an Islamist militant? A Christian soldier? A Buddhist warrior? If you are a true follower of your prophets, this can not be. Pure and simple, such people are thugs, bullies and murderers hiding under the guise or religion to perpetuate their killing ways.
Prayers of healing to Malala!
