Who is Malala?
Why is Malala important to history?
Malala watched people suffer from the Taliban's torturing deeds her whole life, and was tired of it. She blogged pictures and comments on what the Taliban were doing every day. Soon the whole world knew about what was going on, and many of them were angered at the Taliban. Malala noticed what she had done and took it a step further, giving speeches to large crowds, and eventually appeared on T.V. Malala had encouraged hundreds of people to stand up for what is right, and to not give in. The Taliban saw Malala as a danger to their operations and decided they would not let her prevail. One morning Taliban gunmen boarded Malala's school bus and demanded to see her immediately. When nobody obeyed them, they fired carelessly at the crowd of innocents. One bullet struck Malala on the side of her head, shattering pieces of her skull into her brain. Malala was sent to a hospital in Britain to recover, while word was being spread around the world about the gunmen. Now, millions of people are angered and sickened by the Taliban's actions.
