Malala Yousafzai's address to the UN

How despicable and shameful what the Taliban did to Malala Yousefzai. She was ruthlessly shot by Pakistani Taliban last year. Malala has nevertheless miraculously resurrected from her moment of extreme violence and horror as ever-more strong, vocal, and courageous. She is a true symbol of the world-wide struggle for girls' and all people's human right to an education and for women's rights to independence and voice that a good education together with good policies defending women's and children's rights provide. 

The pen is indeed mightier than the sword!

There is hope in the world.
