Jill and her family are reunited

I could not control my tears when I saw the pictures of Jill reuniting with her family. What a happy ending! We love you Jill. Welcome back! There’s a wonderful story about her return here and much more here. But make sure to check all the wonderful pictures on The Christian Science Monitor.

Jill is reunited with her family

Upon returning and reuniting with her family Jill said:

I finally feel like I am alive again. I feel so good … To be able to step outside anytime, to feel the sun directly on your face — to see the whole sky. These are luxuries that we just don’t appreciate every day.

    It is so unfair for people to say mean things about Jill following the video she was obviously forced to participate in!! But again, Natasha, mabrouk. Hope you can sleep better šŸ™‚

    The best thing in the world is a loving family. And it is always good to remember how lucky we all are, being able to see the whole sky. Again, so happy for Jill.

    It’s so nice to see the pics of her reunited with her family. I hope they are given some privacy for a while.
    BTW, what does the word “mabrouk” mean?

    Nice ending; one picture is worth 1000 words.
    Mabrouk means “congratulations” in Arabic.

    I cried looking at all the pictures. I am so happy for Jill and her family. Now they can finally relax and breath for the first time in 3 months.
    Jareer, thanks for the translation. I was wondering the same thing.

    A Message to Jill and All:
    I am an Arabic Muslim, living in USA as an International Student, and recently a mother of a son and a wife for a wanderful husband. I want to express my happiness for Jill’s release, I am very happy for that Jill, I feel so mad for what ever those people done for you and for all the inosent USA civilllians. What I hate the most is that they are doing it in the name of Islam, While, Islam is completely inosent from their actions, and one day GOD will punnish them, because GOD would never accept innocent humans to be mistreated, himiliated or even killed in his name. Those people are hurting me and you and the whole world. WELCOME BACK JILL, Hope you will succeed in your Journey for truth finding. May God lead you to the right path.
    Nesreen

    Indeed Raindrop.. I am a fellow Muslimah & was disgusted that people can carry out such absurdities, in the name of Islam. May Allah deal with them in his own way.
    Ma’a Salaam.
