I am a teacher and being a teacher I am actually a student as the oft repeated story tells us..
So as the story of Malala unfolds, she has become my most influential teacher today..
So what have I learnt?
You can protest gracefully and with a smile
Resistance is as important as action
People who make life difficult are not always bad evil people .. they most often are “lazy lazy” ( M.Y.)
By deciding to change your own circumstances you can change the world.
If your loved ones are with you, you can achieve so much more
Courage does not need a gun
When one falls the other must take her place – life is a relay event: we must run it together.
We need inspiration to stop being “lazy lazy”
Age is not a factor. Confidence is.
Children have wisdom and often see things more clearly.
Those who encourage us as also heroes… such as Malala’s parents, family and community.
Us “lazy lazy” people do have a heart waiting to beat louder … so many have been touched by Malala.
A simple thing like the right to knowledge can be the most important thing to fight for.
