Be Peaceful and Love Everyone

Be peaceful and love everyone

 

"This is what my soul is telling me: Be peaceful and love everyone."

 

Malala Yousafzai is a Pakistani schoolgirl who was shot in the head for defying the Taliban  and speaking out for her right and the rights of young women to an education. At 17, she is the youngest ever Nobel Peace Prize recipient (announced October 10, 2014.)

In 2013, The United Nations proclaimed July 12, her birthday, "Malala Day" for her efforts defending the rights of some 57 million children around the world denied the right to an education. In a speech to the United Nations, Malala (at a mere 16 years of age) spoke out against terrorism and poverty, and called for a united front advocating for and supporting education. "'Malala Day' is not my day," She explained." Today is the day of every woman, every boy and every girl who have raised their voice for their rights."

Following are 10 of the most poignant quotes from her speech.

"We realize the importance of our voice when we are silenced."

"One child, one teacher, one book and one pen can change the world. Education is the only solution. Education first."

"This is what my soul is telling me: Be peaceful and love everyone."

"There was a time when women social activists asked men to stand up for their rights, but this time we will do it by ourselves."

"So, today we call upon the world leaders to change their strategic policies in favor of peace and prosperity."

"Let us shield ourselves with unity and togetherness."

"We realized the importance of pens and books when we saw the guns. The extremists are afraid of books and pens."

We cannot all succeed when half of us are held back."

[Extremists] are afraid of change, afraid of the equality that we will bring into our society."

"Malala Day is not my day. Today is the day of every woman, every boy and every girl who have raised their voice for their rights"

Malala's actions and their results are irrefutable proof that no matter your sex, age, status, education or wealth, you CAN make a difference in our world.
