The Girl Who Just Wants To Learn of the Day: Meet Malala Yousafzai, a 14-year-old Pakistani girl shot by the Taliban this week on her way home from school —  ”A bullet struck her head, but her brain is safe,” one of her doctors reported.
Why is the Taliban targeting her? Because she openly campaigns online and in her country for education for girls.
A Taliban spokesman says that if she survives, they’ll come for her again:
She was pro-West, she was speaking against the Taliban and she was calling President Obama her idol. She was young but she was promoting Western culture.

Courage.
