Standing for Malala

“My role and struggle is beyond personal fame and achievement. I will be happy when every girl in this land gets formal education. I will not sit with ease until all my girls receive education and learn their rights,”  Malala Yousafzai
Malala, just 14 was shot in the head in an assassination attempt by taliban gunmen and has been in critical condition since the 9th of October. Gunned down because she actively seeks freedom of education for girls in the swat valley, in Pakistan. My thoughts and prayers goes out to her and her family. This is not the end but the beginning, your future is bright…and you would live to see another day. 

It's news like this that makes you appreciate where you are and those little things we take for granted.
