A Week in the Life: Friday, final update (Lydia's Grade Eight)

"Before the terrorism, I used to carry a heavy bag to school, and I used to learn every day, but I did not know how important education is until we were stopped, because I realized the terrorists are against education, and especially girls' education, because they are afraid of it." Malala Yousafzai, 2013 CBC interview
