Sometimes we need to read deeper into the stories that grasp our attention.
We are all familiar with Malala and her brave stance. But remember, the Taliban didn’t just shoot her. They shot other people too.
Seema Jilani makes an excellent point here. We have basically picked a poster child for women in Afghanistan but forgotten about the other girls who were injured for wanting the same things that she did.
There is a project to help rescue the other girl (the third one is in hiding) who was shot by the Taliban and who we have effectively “doomed” to death.
So give. Give generously… This isn’t just about poster children. And tell them FTB sent ya…
