She’s back

Malala yesterday saying why she’s pleased to be going back to school.

It makes me happy to watch it because she looks so all there, so alert and engaged and eager and ready to go. She looks so fundamentally undamaged. Suck it, Taliban.

    I’m so proud to have her here. I hope she and her family get permanent resident status.

    It makes me very proud that she was brought here given the medical treatment she needed. That she is now able to continue with her education. We aren’t a perfect society by any means, but we’re so much better than the taliban.

    I see what you did there. Beautiful.

    OB: I wholeheartedly feel the same way. To think that just five months ago her life was touch and go.

    She’s well on her way to becoming one of this (fledgling) Century’s most influential people.

    OK, she does have an asymmetrical facial expression, but it didn’t damage her spirit (if you will), and she’s great.

    I was going to say something further about how she’s lovely and it reminds me of X problem with achieving progress global solutions etc etc, but the comment was eaten. At least partly my stupid fault. Do dee do.
