Makayla Matheu's curator insight, February 12, 1:33 PM

So I saw this video on Facebook and it really shocked me. It shocked me how an 11 year old was going to be forced to marry this 40 year old man because her parents said so. If she did not agree they would kill her. She decided to speak out about it and a few weeks later she got killed. It is really sad how people take life for granted. She could have had a wonderful life but it had to be shortened. It just shocks me even more that she had the courage to do this. She knew her life was at stake but she risked it anyway. She is not the only girl who is being forced to marry older men, there are children younger than her. She wanted to speak out and ask people for help. She gave up her life for someone to hear her and now people have. The real question is, will anyone help her even though this message has been delivered?
