Malala....

Malala Yousufzai...the story of children doing the job adults should be doing. And of adults so entrenched in religious belief that they would kill a young girl to make a savage point. Malala is doing better. She's talking now and her physicians are saying there's no sign of brain damage. She was a hero before...now she's been elevated to the stratosphere. She will inspire children...and old men like me...to point out evil when they see it and make a stand. As Edmund Burke said, "All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing." We must stop doing nothing.
