The title says it all. If this story weren’t true it would make an incredible parable. A child in a foreign regime, standing up for rights that her country doesn’t award her. The story of Malala not only highlights the importance of education and freedom of speech, but it also serves as a point of reference. It is easy for us to get caught up in homegrown issues, and vilifying the idea of ‘the other’. Malala serves as a hero from the other side of the world, unfettered by age or position, fighting only against injustice.
