The day was equally as special to her for another reason, it was Malala’s 16th birthday. The speech Malala made was in her own hand, and direct from her heart, It earned a standing ovation and rightly so.
It would appear that Malala opened up Pandora’s box that day, as her newly found position as a political activist has given her personal cause a powerful platform, far more powerful than the one used by the cowards who tried to take her life. Malala has just received a letter from Taliban commander Adnan Rasheed, which is a letter beyond contempt. ‘Dear Malala, this is why we tried to kill you’ The pen wielded by Malala Yousafzai, has proven to be mightier than the ’7.62mm’ sword of Adnan Rasheed! I would urge you to listen to the speech given by 16-year-old Malala, on a birthday that her family thought would never happen.
