This is a cool story.

From Fox News (
An adorable 6-year-old girl who was shot by the Taliban in Afghanistan
will undergo surgery at a Long Island hospital Friday to repair her
shattered little face and allow her to breathe normally again.

Little Marizeh her last name is being withheld to protect her surviving
family members in Afghanistan lost her right eye in a bloody attack
months ago. A bullet entered her left cheek and exited her right temple,
said Long Island plastic surgeon Dr. Kaveh Alizadeh.

"They killed her father and brother, and they shot her in the face,"
Alizadeh said. "They left her for dead. Fortunately, she survived."

That really is a great story. I hope they would offer to do the same for a child shot here in the US.
