Millions of children face Malala's fight for an education

Millions of children face Malala's fight for an education

Editor's note: Gordon Brown served as Britain's Prime Minister between 2007 and 2010 after a decade as the country's finance minister, or Chancellor of the Exchequer. In July this year he was appointed as a United Nations Special Envoy on Global Education by Secretary General Ban Ki-moon.

(CNN) - News that a 14-year-old Pakistani girl was gunned down by the Taliban simply because she wanted to go to school has sparked a wave of protests and condemnation across the world.

As she fights for her life in hospital, Malala Yousafzai is being adopted as every child's sister and every parent's daughter.

Wearing "I am Malala" t-shirts, young people in Pakistan are not only challenging the Taliban's brutality and dogma, they're boldly affirming the right of every child to education. [FULL STORY]

      Whatever that means... It doesn't matter. It is still the "Islamic Republic of Pakistan". Therein lies the problem. You can put lipstick on a pig but... still a pig.

    Dear Mr. Brown:
    After reading the article “Millions of children face Malala’s fight for an education’, I personally came to realize that your claims are right. Beginning with the fact that a 14 year old girl should not be treated so cruelly due to the fact that she wants a higher education, which initially should be a granted opportunity. Therefore, anyone who tries to take away this right, should be considered a low life coward. Although we may not know the children who face these kinds of problems, everyone, all around the world, should be obligated to come together and try to help. It is our duty to guarantee rights such as education, shelter, and food to all children born in this world. I also believe that anyone who is fortunate enough to become wealthy must, in some way, help people in need. Children are the future of the world. If we cant support and nourish our young, then what makes us think we can pursue further knowledge? The way I see it, is that if we want to progress in different fields, actions must be taken to first ensure that everyone is cared and provided for all around the world.

    I have been browsing on-line more than 3 hours as of late, yet I by no means discovered any interesting article like yours. It¡¦s lovely worth enough for me. Personally, if all web owners and bloggers made just right content material as you probably did, the internet might be a lot more useful than ever before.

    Nice read, I just passed this onto a friend who was doing some research on that. And he actually bought me lunch as I found it for him smile Thus let me rephrase that: Thank you for lunch! "High living and high thinking are poles apart." by B. J. Gupta.
