She wants to go to school

The young Pakistani girl, Malala Yousufzai simply wants to go to school and become a doctor. She was shot earlier this week. An arrest has been made of a number of suspects. The young girl has had one of two bullets removed from her body. She is on a ventilator and is listed in satisfactory condition.

“The school is owned and operated by the teenage activist's father, who takes great pride in his daughter's accomplishments and is a champion of education for girls.”

While we bicker over the political debates and FACEBOOK our platform preferences, we forget that the privilege to do so is not universally shared. Many around the world are voicing their good thoughts and prayers for the survival of one amazing, brave teen-age girl – who dared to speak her truth.
