I just saw something on BBC News which made me cry.  A beautiful little girl who has been sold by her father to be married to cover his debt.  Although it is against the law in Afghanistan the tribal elders have approved it.  It happens all the time.

I looked for a petition to end it and found one.  It has only four signatures, I suspect because there is nothing the British government can do about this situation.  I don’t know.  Maybe I should do some research on the internet.
