Prayers Answered Pakistani Schoolgirl Malala Strong and Helping Others

Prayers have been answered. The Pakistani school girl Malala who was shot in the head by the Taliban for wanting to go to school has not been silenced.   Her voice is being heard all over the world, education is important for all girls.

She has set up a fund so 40 girls in Pakistan can go to school.  The 45,000 grant will provide a place for education in the Taliban stronghold of Swat Valley, the place where Malaya is from.
A video was played at the Women in the World summit in New York City to get her message out.

"We are going to educate 40 girls, and I invite all of you  to support the Malala Fund." she said.

"Let us turn the education of 40 girls into 40 million girls."

U.N special envoy Angelina Jolie was moved by Malala's steadfastness in the mist of turmoil.

"They shot her at  point-blank range in the head and  made her stronger." Angelina said   "She doesn't want to be at the center of attention, her goal is progress, not notoriety. She is powerful, but she is also a sweet, creative, loving little girl who wants to help others."

Malala's message is spreading.  Education is a way of promoting peace and happiness in this world.  She is working with the U.N. to tell the countries how important education is.  Angelina wants to help the cause by donating $200,000 to the Malala Fund which was set up to support girls in Pakistan.

It is nothing short of a miracle that Malala is alive and suffered no major brain or nerve damage.  Good does overcome evil.  She went from an intensive care unit in Pakistan where she was in critical condition to reading  a book at the Queen Elizabeth's hosptal in Birmingham, England where she was being treated.

She is now 15 and attending school in Birmingham.  Her gift for writing has spread the cause for education.
Her voice was not silenced but is spreading to communities and families of girls who need to get their daughters in school.
