This is a good story for once to relieve the tensions for those who are struggling with so much stress over what is going on here at home.
A young Ethiopian 12 yr. old girl was abducted by several men who took her out to force her to marry them, was guarded by lions for half a day until authorities found her.
She was beaten repeatedly and left by 7 men. When the police found her she was being guarded by male lions. When the police went to take the girl back, the lions just left her like a gift.
These girls are often beaten and raped until they are near death. One authority stated that her cries may have sounded like a wounded cub and perhaps that is why the lions guarded her. However that doesn’t make much sense since often male lions eat cubs.
The other explanation is that it was a kind of miracle. Most lions will attack humans, especially male ones. So was this a miracle? Do they still happen? Have any of our readers experienced a miracle of some sort they wish to share?
The practice in Ethiopia is to abduct a young girl and force them into a marriage at a very young age. This has been the usual marriage custom in Ethiopia. It is estimated that over 70% of marriages are done by abduction.
