Malala Day 2014

 Malala Day 2014

Malala  celebrated her 17th birthday in Nigeria and joined her voice to help renew calls to bring back the schoolgirls kidnapped by Boko Haram in April.
Malala and millions of girls like her around the world continue to show us that they are stronger than violence, stronger than oppression, stronger than fear… Today, Malala challenges us to show the world what we are stronger than with the #STRONGERTHAN message.

“What are you stronger than?”, she asks
The young girl who fought against
Oppression
Terrorism
And most of all her fears.
“What are you stronger than?”
I ask myself
Have I stood up for what is right?
Have I spoken for the voiceless?
Have I used my resources for the needy?
Am I stronger than
The fears that keep me back
The selfishness that enslaves me
The lethargy that paralyses me?
Something to think about today.
What are you stronger than?
