I just finished my 16th book for the year. In previous posts I’ve shared that I made a commitment to read as many books as I could in 2017. Well, the 16th was a doozy! It is one of those books I started reading a while ago and for some reason couldn’t get in to, the first time. I don’t have any idea why and now I’m embarrassed to admit that. However I went back and picked it up again. BOY! I’m glad I did.
We live in a Country where education is taken for granted. Our children fuss about HAVING to go to school, never realizing what a privilege it is. I was that child too. I did not like school. I went because I had to but never realized or appreciated the opportunity I was receiving. I have an AA degree and never chose to educate myself further. I don’t regret that, but my eyes have been opened to what a struggle it is in other places to even hope for the chance of a partial education.
Thanks for that Malala!
An outstanding book of inspiration, courage and hope. What admiration I have for people (a 15 year old female) who will stand up for what they believe in, no matter what the cost! Heroes come in all shapes, sizes, colors, sexes and ages.
“We human beings don’t realize how great God is. He has given us an extraordinary brain and sensitive loving heart. He has blessed us with two lips to talk and express our feelings, two eyes which see a world of colors and beauty, two feet which walk on the road of life, two hands to work for us, a nose which smells the beauty of fragrance, and two ears to hear the words of love. As I have found with my ear, no one knows how much power they have in their each and every organ until they lose one”… Malala
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this book! Educate yourself.
