Malala Yousafzai is a 14 year old activist that has been working for Pakistani girls right to an education since she was 11 years old. The problem is not the Pakistani government but the Talibans and their extremist views on Islam. She and two other girls where gunned down by Talibans yesterday as they were about to enter their school bus. All girls survived even Malala Yousafzai that have had a three hour surgery to remove the bullet from her head.

It's chilling to think of a 14 year old that almost gave her life to protect the right of education. A privilege that kids around me take so much for granted that they don't value it at all.
