Malala

Evil struck at school for her that day… A beautiful child, wise beyond her years Its aim- to silence her voice and put her away To end the good work she is called to do there Before that day the world had not heard Of Malala, only fourteen years old of Pakistan The local Taliban threatened but she never feared Her faith in God is strong and on that she would stand When the world first heard of the tragic story I wrote the poem “Taliban” and prayed with others We realized she was special, and did give God glory Today she’s alive! With a message- to love one another More Priceless is this jewel than any that Pakistan has seen It's the children like Malala who will build a better tomorrow Girls’ right to an education is her wish to obtain As untold health and wealth waits to replace her country’s sorrow ~*~

    Great honor that you do by telling her story..It is hard to understand the fact that in other countries people are threatened, tortured, and killed for their faith..It is good to be an American when it comes to being free to choose what direction our lives go..Thanks for stopping by..Sara

    Thank you for reading it, Harry. What they did to her makes litle children realize that monsters are real. So sad.

    Hullo, Annalise. I couldn't agree more with your message here. A worthy dedication to a brave girl, who in the face of adversity, doesn't back down from wot she believes in.
