Often, we see an injustice and say to ourselves, "If I speak out, it will make absolutely no difference." Wrong! Speaking out does indeed make a difference.
You may recall that I posted a story about a Christian woman in Pakistan, Asia Bibi, who was given a death sentence for daring to share her faith. Apparently, the pressure from the international community has taken its toll.

Update: Pakistan Leader May Free Condemned Christian Woman
"Pakistani officials say the country’s president may pardon a Christian woman facing a death sentence under laws on blasphemy against Islam.
The case of Asia Bibi has drawn appeals from Pope Benedict XVI and human rights groups to free her. Bibi, a mother of five, was sentenced earlier this month to death.
She told reporters at the prison Saturday that she is innocent and the case was merely a personal dispute.
Shahbaz Bhatti, Pakistan’s minister for minority affairs, said Saturday that President Asif Ali Zardari has asked for a report on the case and has the power to pardon the woman.
Gov. Salman Taseer of Punjab province, where Bibi is held, told reporters in a televised conference he believes Zardari will soon pardon her."
