17 Year Old Nobel Peace Prize Winner Malala Yousafzai Tells World Leaders A Thing Or Two...

During Malala's powerful acceptance speech at the Nobel Peace Prize ceremony in Oslo a few days ago, the young Pakistani schoolgirl who was shot by the Taliban two years ago and has become a global icon, was now sharing the most prestigious of prizes with Indian child rights campaigner Kailash Satyarthi. The gutsy and eloquent Malala criticised world governments for having the resources to begin wars but not the will to enable peace and universal education.
The world's youngest Nobel laureate's wonderful acceptance speech laced with self-deprecating humour is here.
She called as all peace prize winners do, not just for education but also fairness and caring.
The so-called world of adults may understand it, but we children don't. Why is it that countries which we call 'strong' are so powerful in creating wars but so weak in bringing peace? she said.
Why is it that giving guns is so easy but giving books is so hard? Why is it that making tanks is so easy, but building schools is so difficult?
World leaders aren't interested in peace Malala,
there's no money in it...


  1. Malala has made a stand against prejudice and ignorance......she has great courage and I think she also has humility.... the World certainly needs her and others like her at this time.

  2. She is a brave young girl!! I just read where four Christian kids were beheaded by ICIS for refusing to convert to Islam.

  3. Education has always been the answer to so many problems.

  4. Basically it's the USA she's slamming. Rightly so, too. Even ISIS is largely a product of US foreign policy.
