One child, one teacher, one pen and one book can change the world.”   —   Malala Yousafzai

(I always have a hard time coming up with her last name!  Yes, I had to Google it.  I guess it must be my 20th Century, Anglo/Euro-centric mindset!  I thought I was pretty good coming up with her first name on my own!  Very cool lady though.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

When the whole world is silent, even one voice becomes powerful.”   —   Malala Yousafzai

(Why can’t she have a simple name, like Smith or Jones???  That would make my life so much simpler.  She’s a tough kid though.  And, very bright.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(No, Art.  I was not able to come up with the author’s name on my own!  She has been in the news a lot, the last few years.  And, she is a very brave and determined young woman.  But, her name is not exactly a household name.  At least not in my household.  And, no.  I’m not proud of this.  She’s the youngest person to win the Nobel Peace Prize though.  It’s a good thing getting shot in the head is not a prerequisite to winning the Nobel Peace Prize!  She is still just a kid, but as a human rights advocate her name will surely become more and more recognizable.  Even to Eurocentric, semi-chauvanists, like myself.   Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
