Don’t Feel Blue, Feel Inspired: The Courage of Malala Yousafzai
February 21st, 2013
In case you’re feeling a bit blue this morning the amazing story of courage exemplified by Malala Yousafzai, the 15 year old Pakistani girl shot by the Taliban on a school bus last October, should warm your heart and brighten up your day. Malala has made her first video statement since narrowly avoiding death saying she was “getting better day by day”.
“Today you can see that I am alive. I can speak, I can see you, I can see everyone. It is just because of the prayers of people. Because all people – men, women, children – all of them have prayed for me. And because of all these prayers God has given me this new life – a second life. And I want to serve. I want to serve the people. I want every girl, every child to be educated. For that reason we have organised the Malala Fund.”
Malala was targeted by the Taliban because she promoted girls’ education and “Western Thinking”. ons at Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham, successfully operated to reconstruct Malala’s skull and restore her hearing.
Malala has the courage of a lion – and the independent way of being of all cats – including our very own Little Cat!
We salute all of them for their lion-hearted ways!
