Pakistani girl Malala released from hospital

Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani girl shot in the head for campaigning for girls' education, has been released from the hospital in Birmingham, England, the hospital said Friday.

The teen will continue undergoing rehabilitation at her temporary home in the United Kingdom.

Malala was shot by gunmen last fall. She had blogged fearlessly about girls' education and accused the Taliban of thriving on ignorance.


Her journey from near-death to recovery

      Her country didn't protect her and that's why she needed assistance. One young teenager standing up against the Taliban and fighting for her right just to go to school. I don't think you'd have the courage this young girl has.

    Frank, the reason for the hatred is this wicked spirit 1 John 5:19" The whole world is lying in the power of the wicked one. "
    It is not just Chicago's murder rate it is the condition of the world. Your anger shows in your words.

    Problem: Mankind
    Solution: God's Kingdom(government) Matthew 6:9,10 & Daniel 2:44 The Creator is going to clean it all up just as He did in the flood of Noah's day. Genesis 6:5-8.
    That is not what you want to hear, but those are the FACTS!!!!!

      I hardly think drowning innocents and then re-populating the world via incest is the answer.

    I am so happy for Malala & her family. A brave one indeed.
    Wish we Americans would have some feelings also for hundreds of other Malalas who are being sacrificed on the altar of war in Afghanistan & Pakistan since the invasion.

    @ banasy, There was ample warning of the impending flood and I would hardly call those people innocent. Also, incest was allowed for a time to repopulate the earth
