Happy news

Amid all the doom and gloom news that seems to weigh us down at this dark time of the year, especially any story regarding our feckless House of Representatives, there was a notably happy bit of news yesterday.  Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani schoolgirl shot in the head three months ago by the Taliban for advocating the education of girls, has been discharged from a British hospital.

Her doctors said that the heroic young girl had made “excellent progress” in her recovery. She will be staying with her family nearby and will return for further surgery to rebuild her skull in about four weeks.

Considering all the sad news about the treatment of women that we've had to endure recently, Malala's continuing recovery is a bright shining star of hope for us all and some very happy news with which to end our week.
