Subject: RE: BS: Should 'Jihadi bride' come back to UK?
I am deeply saddened, but not surprised, by the lack of humanity in some posters on here.

Shamima Begum was a 15 year old girls when she went to Syria, just 15.

When I was 15 I had all sorts of wonderful visions of how I could change the world for the better. Time and age has robbed me of them but I could still dream of a better world.

Now her vision of a better world and mine are at complete odds with each other. However as a nation I consider we have an obligation to ensure she is safely returned to her native shore and hope, given time and education, she may prove to be a valuable resource to combat the indoctrination of organisations such as IS.

I am thankful it was not my daughter or son.
