A Guy Who Used To Be Homeless Shows Us Exactly What Determination Looks Like

You develop an instant global consciousness, a people orientation, an intense dissatisfaction with the state of the world, and a compulsion to do something about it. From out there on the moon, international politics look so petty. You want to grab a politician by the scruff of the neck and drag him a quarter of a million miles out and say, ‘Look at that, you son of a bitch.

- Edgar Mitchell (via thechillfuckinlife)

There are no choices between good and evil. The world is made up of choices between evil and lesser evil.

John Stewart Interviews Malala Yousafzai

I am embedding the interview on Malala by John Stewart. I published a post yesterday about Malala and today I stumbled upon this interview on youtube. It’s just amazing to see the confidence of this girl, the hope she spreads and the strength in her voice. There’s one more thing you’ll notice that John Stewart, usually very  dominating in his interviews, looks so humbled, respectful and emotional. It’s hilarious when he asks Malala if her dad would be mad if he adopted her. With every answer coming from her, John looks very surprised and impressed at the same time. One more reason to respect Malala, one more reason to like and respect John Stewart.

One year after being shot by the Taliban, Malala Yousafzai is a mighty machine

Her autobiography, released Tuesday, is already a bestseller. She’s just been invited to meet the Queen. On Friday, she’s expected by many to win the Nobel Peace Prize. Malala Yousafzai is just 16, but already has an international platform for her campaign to get girls educated. As Mark MacKinnon writes, she’s had a lot of help

My 2 cents:

I believe this is high time Taliban should realize that they have been wrong all through and are now defeated. And speaking in their terms, if god didn’t want Malala or girls like Malala to win, she would have been dead. What could be derived from this is that god sure is not on Taliban’s side. Also if god wanted people to be illiterate, then why would he send multiple revelations in the form of books, which no one would freaking understand, since no one would be literate. Think about it!
