(I hope my translation is understandable)
Sometimes I am astonished about the people on earth.
I am a child of the sixties and seventies. The time of flower-power, the time of optimism, atmosphere of departure,the time of freedomof the mind.
(“Freedom for Greenland! Removes the pack-ice!” Was a somewhat ironic phrase of this time 😉 ).
The shackles of bigotry were slipped off and people began to think liberally.
It was a great time in which many souls were on the earth, which worked to break
through the rusty old ways of thinking dispositions and expanded the ways of
thinking about centuries.
Love and peace.
But not only.
Acceptance, understanding and open-mindedness were announced.
As time passed – a lot of this was lost.
Today … often I find that these same people who thought as progressive then, now are narrow-minded than their parents.
So this emerging spirit of liberation of thought made no progress.
On the contrary, it stagnated and developed back.
Why? I don’t know.
But I regret it. Infinitely.
There are people like Malala to give me hope again that this development is not completely stopped, but still is there. Somewhere.
Although not in large steps, but at least every now and again. Small bright spots of light.
Also such events as the “fall of the Berlin Wall” or “The Arab Spring”
are small miracles that make me hope that this spirit is not dead, but lives on
for the world …
… and sometime wins against those who would subjugate others

She is truly my heroine in every way. She’s only 16, but she represents what it means to be truly dedicated to one’s cause. She has rekindled a flame and made it brighter so that I can work on causes near and dear to my heart.
Education is empowerment and Malala epitomizes that. My heart can just burst with pride and admiration for her.

one of the things that keeps a people/persons down IS the lack of education. If you want to kill a society or race in a big hurry, stop educating them ~ because the uneducated can be herded like cattle, led or pushed any direction that you want them, even to their slaughter.
Malala is an amazing young woman, with insight far beyond her years, perhaps even far beyond that of many in the collective we call the human race.
Keep fighting Malala… keep fighting.

This video won’t play for me. What was she speaking about?
