Help for girl suicide bomber

a cure
I don't know how many of you have heard about the girl whose father strapped her into a suicide vest and sent her out to blow up herself and as many other people as she could reach. If not for an alert Afghani soldier, that would have been the end of her story. He spotted and stopped her. Now she has been interviewed by the BBC while Hamid Karzai, the president of Afghanistan, tries to decide her fate.

Here's a BBC article with the interview she gave them, about the kind of life she had. And here's my MoveOn.org petition asking that she get not just a place to stay, but a good home, so she can be a real kid for a while. I think this kid is in as much need of a break as Malala. Honestly, I fear for her life, too.

Also, would you boost the signal to anyone you think will care?
