I know that we sometimes can get a little down about the state of the world around us.  But this story is a good reminder that it can be much, much worse.  The following comes from a story in the New York Post, but I won't link it because of some truly vile sidebar images that appear on the link.  Find the full story at your own peril. 

So much evil in the world; so much need for prayer.

Girl crawls out of grave after being raped, buried alive

A 13-year-old girl has dug herself out of a muddy grave after being raped by two men who then buried her alive in Pakistan.

The teen was abducted from her local village in the Punjab province while she was walking to Koran lessons.

Her father Siddique Mughal told police his daughter had been taken, but they refused to cooperate, Outlook India reported.

The men took the young girl to an isolated place and raped her and then buried her alive as they believed she died during the brutal attack.

But the girl managed to dig her way out the muddy grave and caught the attention of passers-by who helped her to a local medical center.[...]
