Malala Yousafzai

I am left absolutely speechless by this video clip.  That doesn't happen very often, let me tell you.

This young woman is amazing.  A hero.  A true selfless, courageous, and incredibly intelligent young woman. 

I know our government isn't working very well together right now.  My Facebook feed is full of news blurbs and people's opinions about who is to blame and spouting off terms like "socialist government" and name calling.  But this...this put things into perspective. 

I don't think often enough about how truly amazing it is that we CAN complain about our government.  That while things aren't working great right now, at least they have the possibility of change, of compromise, of making things better for everyone.  That while I strongly dislike our education system right now, at least we HAVE an education system that everyone is allowed to participate in. 

Yup...PERSPECTIVE.  Yet another amazing thing that education/learning gives us.  I'm so grateful for a little bit of perspective today.
