IF: Burning - A Sad Disturbing Story

Things like this I usually just keep in my journal but this is so disturbing everyone needs to know. This week in the New York Times there was a story about Afghan women who set themselves on fire trying to commit suicide. It made me very emotional to think that a woman's life would be better if she set herself on fire and died. Life is not always beautiful. I do not want to close my eyes and forget about others in the world and I wonder WHY?. Let's pray for a better world for everyone.To read the story go here:New York Times www.nytimes.com/2010/11/08/world/asia/08burn.html?_r=1&am...

oh this is very strong and this story is so sad...to think that these women have no other alternative really is sad.....let us all pray that they can have a better life and that suicide will never be the answer.....

That is sad, but you did a great job illustrating it. One day, it will be these brave women (not their regretful men) who will be bountiful in heaven.
