Malala Yousufzai was shot in the head and neck when gunmen fired on her school bus in the Swat valley, northwest of the capital, Islamabad. Two other girls were also wounded.
Yousufzai became famous for speaking out against the Pakistani Taliban at a time when even the government seemed to be appeasing the hardline Islamists.
Doctors were struggling to save Yousufzai, said Lal Noor, a doctor at the Saidu Sharif Teaching Hospital in the Swat valley's main town of Mingora.
If you believe in God, pray to that God for Malala's recovery while she fights for her life. And pray to God, Allah, the prophet Muhammad, whatever you believe in to bring swift and harsh punishment to the cowardly bastard who shot her and two other children, and to bring all cowardly Taliban terrorists to justice. These cowardly bastards have no heart or soul or respect for life. They are nothing but a bunch of murderer's and evil pricks that need to be stopped.
I'm sorry, but when I read this earlier, my heart sunk and my anger showed itself. I have been trying to understand this madness all day. I have even cried for this young, beautiful and innocent child of peace and her friends.
We are pulling for you sweet Malala. Hang in there. You are in all of our hearts.
