“I want to get my education, and become a doctor…” This 14-year-old girl close her mouth, and begin to cry. You know, I was crying from the first I saw her. I was in internet café, and I didn’t care if people watch me cry watching this little girl struggling to get education.
Malala, this beautiful Pakistan girl is in England now, struggling to survive because she has been shot by Taliban. That incident happened because she was brave to stand up against Taliban policy to deny education for girls in her hometown, Swat Valley, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province.
Malala has became world’s attention when he was 11 years old. She wrote to BBC Blog about Taliban, and their crime action, such as burning a shool for girls. Malala receive a National Peace Award from Pakistan Government last year. She also nominated for International Children’s Peace Prize.
“They cannot stop me, I will get my education if it is in home, school, or any place. This is our request to all the world, save our world, save our Pakistan, Save our Swat.”
Maybe she is thinking of her school right now, her father who is a teacher at her school, her friends, and her dream to be a doctor. She’s a hero for every girl in her country. She has open the world’s eye, even Madonna sang for her. I believe the world always pray for you, and please fight back.
I think Malala’s incident just gave me a reflection. In my country education has been easy to access, in my opinion, and for everyone, while Malala and her friends must live under siege, try to hide and avoid Taliban who carrying grenades and guns in their way to school. I should be grateful. I’m still young and I can open my eyes and see the world with education, while Malala and her friends like playing ‘hide and seek’ with Taliban – if they get caught, they would die.
Keep on fighting, Malala, I know all I can do is only pray for you, but I tell you that I have a dream too. I want to be a journalist, and I will inspire every people to take education as the very important thing, to live. To see the world, not only its bright side but also its dark side. To see you and the other injustice. To be grateful for every gift from God. To survive and fight. To be brave like you.
