Reuters is reporting that the Indian gang rape victim has died. She was 22. And a medical student.
They are not releasing her name, just calling her "the victim" or "the woman." News of her attack has spawned massive protests across India.
This is hard on the heels of another gang rape victim's suicide, after police officers pressured her to drop the charges against her attackers and marry one of her assailants.
There are no words for this. I don't understand the attackers. And I don't want to. I am taking a moment to pray for and honor the courage of these victims and I will make a donation to charity in their memory. Then, I plan to do whatever I can - whatever little I can - to create a world that is safe, nurturing, protective and honors both our daughters and our sons.
11:32 PM PST - Wow, I am honored to be on the rec list - but would gladly forgo this honor if it meant that valiant lady got to draw another breath - or prevented just one rape from being perpetrated. Just one.
8:23 AM PST - Reuters now reports that her assailants have been arrested and charged with murder. We will see what happens next.
