Malala Day

Happy birthday to Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani schoolgirl who was shot by a Taliban terrorist for advocating girls' education. She celebrated her 16th birthday today by addressing the UN in New York. She told more than 500 students at a specially convened youth assembly that books and pens scare extremists. "They are afraid of women," she said. UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon also addressed today's meeting, calling Malala "our hero" and "our champion" and demanding the world "invest in young people and put education first." (CLICK). Weaning them from nutty religion would be a start.
