Malala Yousafzai on the Daily Show

Most of the reactions I have seen to Malala Yousafzai's recent appearance on The Daily Show With Jon Stewart have been extremely positive. Nearly everyone seems to be quite impressed with her, and I share this sentiment. I recently caught that episode and thought she was quite impressive. I had to remind myself while watching it how young she is because she seemed mature beyond her years. The courage to speak out like she has despite the very real threat she faces is awe inspiring.

Watching someone take risks like this to defend the value of education and pursue her rights to obtain an education in an environment so reluctant to recognize those rights is a bit humbling. I wonder how many of us would be so brave and determined in similar circumstances. I don't suspect I would.
