Malala delivers defiant riposte to Taliban militants as UN hails 'our hero'

"'They thought that the bullet would silence us. But they failed,' says Malala, 16, at UN to push campaign for girls' education"

This young woman is someone who was probably thrust into a limelight that she didn't desire. She has certainly taken up her role with conviction and courage. She has suffered so much already due to the actions of the violent Islamist cowards in her home country. I do hope she can stay safe and healthy, protected from the fanatics. Words against bullets...
