Two fists pumping! 18 Year Old Kasmir Girl Fights Off Militants! (picture, mine.)

This is an awesome story full of real world Teaching – let alone victory. It speaks directly to the power of raw courage mixed with intent, martial spirit and primal instincts– which often leads the body into action. It came to me, literally, while working on my group email, struggling on how to best capture my call for a NEW Female Dharma and Divinity that joins our higher and lower selves, closing the gap, the dangerous divide that cleaves Beauty From Beast…Voila!

This 18 year old girl fought back– then pumped one attacker full of lead- against men who were beating her family, in part because she din’t want to marry one of them. “I pounced on one of the militants while my brother hit him with an axe…” In terms of tactics and timingshe did everything right: She grabbed him BY THE HAIR and banged his head against the wall. When he fell down she hit him with an axe, then snatched his rifle. “I had never touched a rifle before this, let alone fired one – but I had seen heroes firing in films..”

Kashmir is fraught with danger. I only pray that her family will be properly protected.
