She was fortunate to have a supportive uncle to run to. Most other girls in situations likt this probably have no one to run to. Sad.

The girl is so tiny and small. It is shocking to believe that anyone would believe she would be ready for marriage and possible pregnancy. Videos like this put a face on child marriage in a way that reading articles don't

What a brave little girl, Im glad she has a loving uncle who will take care of her and give her a proper childhood.

How can anyone think of this tiny child as ready for marriage, and what kind of disgusting person would want to marry her? No 11 year old is ready to get married, theyve still got a lot of growing to do before they can cope with a pregnancy, and should be spending these years at school, learning and playing with friends.

On this topic, I recommend anybody who hasn't read it already to pick up a copy of "I Am Nujood: Age 10 and Divorced"

haunting.

What a brave little girl. I'm so glad she was able to run to her uncle. It breaks my heart though, that she had family members who wanted to marry her off, especially since she had a relative who committed suicide after being forced into an abusive marriage at 14. :(

That video made me want to cry. She is so well-spoken and beautiful. But she is a CHILD!!!! My heart breaks for the girls in her situation and what she has had to go through to maintain her childhood.

In my professional life I have had the sorrow of working with a pregnant 11 year old. It's heart breaking on every level. There's this tiny child, one who should still be playing with her friends, and yet she's sitting there with a swollen belly - in that case because of her own father. In fact, that was the sight that made me pro-choice, rather than just kind of ambivalent. In my case, it was in a fairly "respectable" area of a major us city, and did not involve immigrants.

Eleven year olds should not have these problems. Anywhere in the world.

      I highly recommend Not the Good Girl's Youtube channel. She is making great documentaries about cults.

      Ohh jeeze, GrandBerry6 just came to me, snuggled his face in my neck and barfed, all over me. In my neck, in my hair, on my face, down inside my nightie all over the front of my nightie. Ohh FUCK! Bath, washed hair, cleaned sofa. Good times, good times.

      I danced through my living room feeling awesome. From time to time I do this. Maybe wine is involved. Good music is definitely involved. It is awesome. I recommend it to you. With or without wine.

      After a few months of trying to decide what kind of new computer to get and my brother telling me a Mac would be the best decision I could ever make and my sister telling me that would be the worst and I ought to stick to Windows.... I now have a used Mac. I am trying to get used to it. Not easy, but the Magnifying program is a lot better than the Windows one (that was the ultimate reason for my decision) and FJ works a lot better than on my 10-year old Laptop, too!!

      Y'all, holter monitors suck. And naturally the palpitations that caused this test to be ordered are remarkably absent today. 
      I'm off to go work out in the hopes that triggers it. T minus 10 hours till I get this thing off.

      I frigging hate the toilets at this worksite. Specifically the door locks. Stupid little knoblet that isn't clear if it is locked or not. Door opens right off the main hallway and the toilet is just far enough from the door that I can't just hold the door shut in case I've got the lock wrong. I mean really people, how hard is it to design this? I just want to pee in private with no anxiety. Apparently that is too much to ask for.

      First thing I'm doing when I get to the hereafter is finding the ancestors who moved to the US in the first place and asking them what the fuck they were thinking moving here in the first place.  Along with giving them an epic the reason you suck speech hopefully in the presence of God and the Lord Jesus Christ Himself to all of them for condemning their descendants to living in a shithole.

      Do any of you play Dyson Sphere Program?   For those who don't know what it is I'd suggest Googling it, because there's no way I could do it justice. 
      There's always just one more thing to do before I turn off.  Blink!  And it's 2 hours later.
