Malala Yousafzai before the United Nations: She Is Part Of Our Hope for the Future…..
“ What a Great Article in CNN online concerning sixteen year old Malala Yousafzai. Malala Yousafzai is the Pakistani teenager nearly killed by Taliban gunmen simply because she advocated that all girls must have the right to receive an education in a school setting. Malala Yousafzai gave her first speech to the United Nations on Friday which also happened to be Malala’s 16th birthday.
“Today, it is an honor for me to be speaking again after a long time,” she said. “Being here with such honorable people is a great moment in my life.” Malala Yousafzai told her audience of hundreds of children from around the world as well as U.N. members, including Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon. Malala Yousafzai told them that she was wearing a pink shawl that once belonged to Benazir Bhutto, the two-time prime minister of Pakistan who was killed in 2007 in a suicide attack at a political rally.
We invite you to visit the CCN website and read Malala’s speech here as it appeared on CCN online, because it is beautiful, it is poignant and it shows us that in spite of whatever cynicism might creep into our minds from time to time concerning the future of society as we know it, we can be inspired and hopeful with young people such as Malala Yousafzai.” Attorney Martin E.
