Catching Up

I'm only now catching up on news and blog posts from the past week, and I came across this piece by the Anchoress on a brave 10 year old named Namrata Nayak. Namrata suffered 40 percent burns during anti-Christian violence in Orissa, India, in August of this year. She remained faithful, hopeful, and prayerful throughout the ordeal, and her burn scars have since disappeared.

Alas, poor Ameneh Bahrami, the victim of a spurned suitor's vengeful actions in 2004 was left disfigured and blinded, in physical and psychological pain. It amazes me that her attacker admits to having thrown sulfuric acid in her face but still claims "I haven't done anything wrong."
