Malala Yousafzai is the Pakistani girl shot in the head by a fundamentalist Muslim for the crime of attending school and speaking out for equality and women’s rights in society.
This young woman’s attitude, courage and determination is the very spirit of universal empathy. She wishes no ill will even for the person who shot her, yet she refuses to be silent. She pushes fear aside and continues to speak out for freedom and education for all people.
May she come to no more harm. It would be a great loss for the world.
