Update: NY Times: Backstory on Malala:
Just watched this, this morning. Such bravery, poverty, anger, cultural obstacles, and a love for education as a means for uplift.
“Malala Yousafzai amazing answer on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.”
This girl appreciates education more than most of us appreciate life itself. Such strength in her peace, compassion and ideals. “The moment” begins at 4:10 (but watch the whole thing, she’s riveting, inspiring).
“Malala Yousafzai giving an emotional answer about how she would treat a member of the Taliban if he came to her house. Taken from The Daily Show dated 2013.10.08.”
