Many thanks to Sabah Batul, for nominating me for the Three Day Three Quotes challenge which requires me to post a quote on three consecutive days and challenge 3 more people to do the same. I see a lot of quotes these days on Social Media so it is hard to find something that stands out and that is easily memorable. I think this quote fits the bill.
“When the whole world is silent, even one voice becomes powerful.”
Most of you will know Malala’s story. At the age of 14, in 2012, she was shot by the Taliban. She and her family were able to get to England where she recovered from her injuries. In 2014, she won the Nobel Peace Prize. I recommend the documentary movie “I am Malala.” In the movie, her past in Pakistan is portrayed via lovely artistic animations.
As I was looking for a quote from her, I was interested to find extracts from her BBC blog which she started at the age of 11. It took me right there to her experience in Pakistan.
That she continues with the work that she is now doing, even while continuing her own studies, is testament to what can be achieved with a positive attitude.
My nominations for this challenge are:
My apologies if you get these notifications twice. I have messed up copying a post so this is part of the fix!
