“One child, one teacher, one book, and one pen can change the world. Education is the only solution.” Malala Yousafzai
In all of my life, I have never seen a more amazing example of bravery than Malala Yousafzai, the young girl, shot in the head by the Taliban last October for advocating for education for girls. This month, she stood before the UN and spoke, not of revenge or hatred, but of the importance of education for every child.
Imagine, a girl, so determined, so brave, so clear on the value of education that she risks her life for it again and again.
Your bravery is amazing, Malala. Thanks for reminding us to continue to stand for what matters despite the attempts of others to silence us.
The entire speech is just over 16 minutes. My guess is, you will want to watch it more than once.
