Malala Yousafzai’s speech to the United Nations


Video by ABC News

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.

      Thank you for liking the post. She is indeed a brave person. That she’s so young is astonishing. She is a glimmer of hope in the darkness of radical fundamentalism.
