This story has touched me, so I want to post it here for you guys to see. A 14 year old girl stands up against the Taliban and is shot for her bravery. Here’s the video just in case the embedded video doesn’t work.
Brave Teen Girl
Here’s an excerpt from the article:
Malala Yousufzai’s courageous blogging against the Taliban set her apart from other 14-year-old Pakistani girls.
Growing up in a region once dominated by the Islamic extremists, she knew the fear associated with the word Taliban.
One of her fears came to pass Tuesday, when gunmen sought her out and opened fire on her school van, leaving her seriously wounded along with two other classmates…Last year, Malala told CNN she feared “being beheaded by the Taliban because of my passion for education. During their rule, the Taliban used to march into our houses to check whether we were studying or watching television.”
This little girl had to hide her books because some sick people are afraid of educated girls. Malala has more courage than many of the adults in our world, I hope she makes a full recovery from this vicious attack.
