Quotes

...Anne Frank, a young teenager and her diary proved to be the final answer of futilities of war. As Anne clearly wrote in her diary, "Everyone has inside of him a piece of good news. The good news is that you don't know how great you can be! How much you can love! What you can accomplish! And what your potential is!”."
For years, he'd run schools that educated girls in Pakistan's Swat Valley District. And the threats came regularly. "We took it for granted they would never go for a child" he said
..." From that moment, he told us recently, "I was no longer a campaigner for peace or education. I just remained a father."
"Malala's courage won her many friends, but she also made enemies. On October 9, 2012, she was shot while going to school and suffered serious injuries. By then, Malala had many supporters, and she was moved to England and given very good medical treatment. The whole world watched closely as she recovered. Malala was now even more determined to continue her fight for girls' education. She said that the attack had only made here stronger. She was back $ with strength, power and courage" it says
