An Update on Noor's Story

A couple weeks ago, I wrote about an article I had read in the August 2010 issue of (U.S) Marie Claire. The article was about Noor Almaleki, a 20 year girl who was murdered by her father because he believed she was bringing shame to their family.

I was really touched and saddened by her story, and thankful that the
wonderful people at Marie Claire had chosen to include an article about Noor's murder in their fabulous magazine. I decided I wanted to spread the word the best I could, so I posted about it on here, in addition to telling everyone I knew about Noor and recent honor killings that I had learned about from the Marie Claire article.

Last night, I received a comment on my post, Noor's Story. The comment was from Abigail Pesta, the author of the MC article and the editor-at-large of Marie Claire!!! She thanked me for writing about Noor and also for encouraging whoever read my post to join a Facebook page that is dedicated to Noor.

Let me just say that if that was really Abigail who commented, that is one of the greatest honors of my life! Truly incredible! No words can describe it!

Again, I strongly encourage you, my readers, to take some time to learn about Noor Almaleki, if you haven't already.

XOXO,
