Malala

Today, I heard Malala Yousafzai speak. She was being interviewed on The Current (CBC Radio One). To listen to Malala is to be inspired. I am awestruck by her courage, her humanity and her force of conviction.  It is no wonder that the Taliban were so afraid of this teenager that they tried to silence her with bullets.  She said in the interview, ““They wanted to silence one Malala, but instead now thousands and millions of Malalas are speaking.”  She has indeed given a voice to millions of girls deprived of basic education.  Malala is a role model not just for all girls, but for us all.
