Malala's recovery process after Taliban attack

Dr. Sanjay Gupta explains the medical treatment Malala, 14, will receive in England. He says her young age is a beneficial factor for the process her brain will need to go through to rewire itself.

The Pakistani teen was targeted by the Taliban and shot twice at point-blank range while she was in a school van with other students. Malala was attacked for promoting girls' education.

Reza Sayah reports on what Pakistani officials are doing to try to find those responsible for the attack. There have been a few arrests, but they are still investigating.

    I feel sorry for what her parents have to endure everyday. Everyone in the U.S. hopes for her Recovery (Speedily) If she had come to the U.S. on a green card she would get better care. I would like to meet her someday. She had the guts to promote Girls education in a war torn country. She is not little, she is in her teen years. She is almost a full grown woman.

    It is sad to think that this girl is just one example of many people killed for trying to live among these crazy people. While I have sympathy for her and hope she has a full recovery I wonder if anybody really believes that it will change. We are looking at hundreds, maybe thousands of years in this mindset.
    And the stance our government now takes about every issue is about as affective as the debate was tonight. We do a lot of talking and not much doing. But then what would the "doing" be? There is no real answer to change this situation, and I resent that our military is dying for a cause that we will never see fulfilled. We cannot save the world!
