Guts

Today in Pakistan ten men have been taken into custody, and they are said to have been connected to the attempt on Malala Yousafzai’s life in 2012. They shot her in the head and injured two of her classmates. Miraculously, she survived and has used her story to advocate for education and nonviolence.

She is an articulate and courageous young girl who has the guts to stand up to the Taliban and tell President Obama about the negative ramifications of using drones against terrorists.

It’s questionable whether or not members of the Taliban would be arrested at all if they had attacked an unknown person. But it shows the power that a worldwide story can hold if the word is spread. It’s one of the redeeming qualities of social media and news.

She’s also adorable, and watching her interview with Jon Stewart kind of blew me away:

  1. Yeah she is super cool. The world needs more like her.

    I would’ve liked to hear the conversation between her and Obama…
