this would render me speechless too.

i like to think i have a way with words. i like to envision myself as an activist — someone with opinions who wants to change the world. and in my own little way, i am. but this young woman is inspiring.  i have never faced the threat of death for simply wanting an education; i was able to freely move about my campus any way i pleased.  even before Malala was threatened by the Taliban, she spoke out.  she stood for what she believed and risked her life.   though i may never make headlines like Malala, i hope the same can be said of me someday.
