Class Dismissed: Malala's Story (Grant Trainer)

Malala Yousafzai's story of living in Swat and the troubles associated with this area really stuck with me. "January 15th is the last day that women are allowed to go to school, after this the Taliban have prohibited it. The reason why this story stuck with me is because it amazes me that even today, in the 21st century with the technology and advancements we (U.S.A.) and other countries have made. There are still people being oppressed and countries still struggling to catch up with modern times and equality be given to all. It makes us realize that we take having an education for granted like it is a chore to do when really it is a privilege to be educated. We should learn to appreciate this more and do our best to help others gain this privilege.
