Here is something I hope this community can get behind. Wouldn't it be wonderful if this actually came true.
My comment that accompanied my signature:
Malala demonstrates that courage is not just the stuff of military purple hearts and silver stars. A young teenager faced down intolerance and was gravely wounded for it. And an ocean away - all I can do is sign this petition.
Signed! And, gladly.
Signed immediately. Malala has more courage and integrity than any number of Taliban who would silence her for her insistence on her and her friends' right to an education. She is one truly amazing young woman.
Thanks to Pat and Loren who replied and the other 12 people who read this post. I guess my title was not inspiring for this topic because only a few people looked at this. The oppression of women gets me so steamed and I was hoping for a big response from this community. Maybe people saw this and had already signed up for it in another online venue.
Here is a letter I got from the person who had the original idea. Nice to see such an effect on Canadian leaders.
