We will never be subdued by the militants and their acts. Islam gives us the right to education and we will fight for our rights. We will never ever give up our mission. …This land needs us and we can only help Pakistan if we can complete our education.

– An anonymous teenager, who attended school with Malala Yousafzai • Speaking out against the Pakistani Taliban, who earlier this week attempted to murder the 14-year-old Yousafzai in retaliation for her anti-Taliban activism and blogging. The school Yousafzai attends has been closed since the attack, in which she was shot, but a contingent of her classmates showed up today to pray for her safety. Yousafzai currently remains in a coma, under the care of military surgeons. source (via shortformblog)
