"Life is Aisha"

One remembers the 1970s song that Stevie Wonder wrote in honor of his newborn daughter Aisha... "Isn't She Lovely?"

While the beautiful girl in this picture, whose name is Bibi Aisha, is not newly born--she has surely suffered too horribly for this to be said--she is unquestionably every bit as lovely as even Mr. Wonder's newborn daughter.

She was revealed to the public yesterday in a press conference in Los Angeles where the doctors who repaired her returned her to the world.

I will not show the pictures of what the unbelievably evil backwoods, ignorant Afghani barbarian--her husband--did to her. That picture is well known and I cannot bear to see it again.

But this picture of this incredible girl, equipped, for now, with a prosthetic nose, shows both the beauty she was and the beauty she still is.

Through the sacrifice of the relatives who protected her, the soldiers that rescued her and the doctors who restored her, the lyrics of this song take on a whole new meaning.

Isn't she pretty
Truly the angel's best
Boy, I'm so happy
We have been heaven blessed
I can't believe what God has done
through us he's given life to one
But isn't she lovely made from love?

Isn't she just.

God love her and may the full measure of His justice befall those who did her harm.
