OK, So Here's the Good News . . .

Today is Friday! That's the good news!!

Oh, and one more bit of good news . . .

The Human Rights Commission in Saudi Arabia helped a 12 year old girl finally get a divorce from her 80 year old husband!

Despite the fact that many clerics feel that Mohammad's marriage to a nine year old girl sets a positive example, the Ministry of Justice in Saudi Arabia is considering raising the legal age limit for marriage. Because of the legal battle of this girl and her mother, officials are now forming committees to meet and discuss what the appropriate age of marriage for a woman should be.

Well, progressiveness doesn't happen over night. After all, disagreeing with Mohammad these days takes a lot of guts.
