Dying to Believe

Some more of the same

Stupidity continues to claim lives. The tragedy is world-wide:

On May 22, 14-year-old Lalsara Bika died from a severe cold-related illness contracted during her stay in isolation.

That is an excerpt from a larger item on CNN. Young Lalsara’s isolation was required by chhaupadi, a practice common to western Nepal. It requires women to be isolated during their menstrual periods. While this seems to be such a trivial thing to result in the loss of a life, I have in the back of my mind there are more extreme examples in this modern world.

Keep reading. And may Jesus have mercy on our souls.
