Iraqi girl hears for the 1st time

One of the good stories that wont be on TV.

Quote:
The Iraqi girl had been deaf since birth. With the help of the U.S. Army in Iraq and a Miami-based aid group, she was flown to the United States to have a hearing implant surgically placed in her ear.
Yesterday, the implant was activated for the first time. She heard several doctors clapping and her father's gentle Arabic accent. But the sound she seemed most enamored with was that of her own voice.
Always seem to be a grey lining to these people's lives though, no matter how hard we try to make it better.

sad but

Those dumbass extremist Muslims might kill her if she goes back home just because she was helped by Americans.
WTF do you do with people like that. I know what I wished would happen to them and it's not death. I wish their attitude could change and they all could believe in life as strongly as they believe in death.

Better keep that story well-hidden. It doesn't follow the agenda.
