I wasn't sure if I should post this. Honestly, I was going to post something cute that I found on another blog, but then I found this and it ruined my day. And while I don't want to ruin everyone else's day, I also think it's important to realize that, while we here on this side of the world like to think that the feminists won and everything's equal and great, elsewhere in the world, girls are still so undervalued that their lives are often forfeit for the family's gain - sometimes in things like child marriages, and sometimes in terrible, terrible instances like this one.
A couple in a poverty-stricken district of India sacrificed their daughter in a ritual that they were told would make them rich.
Her name was Kanna, and she was four years old.
