Who Continues to Inspire Me?


Malala. Malala Yousafzai continues to inspire me. I wrote about Malala last December noting that she was the most inspirational person to me in the year 2012. As we all know, Malala is now known to the entire international community as the Pakistani schoolgirl who was shot by the Taliban for going to school. On July 12th, Malala addressed young people and old alike at the United Nations, urging them to use the gift of education as a weapon against extremism. If you have not heard Malala’s speech, then please take a few minutes and listen, it is worth every second you spend.  (The full 17 minute video is above;  a shorter summary is here “Malala Day at UN: Teen Activist Shot by Taliban Said Ten Moving Things That Gave Us Goosebumps”)

Peace friends,
