My hero went back to school today

My hero Malala Yousufzai, went back to school today.

Do you know who Malala is? You should, but I don't blame you if you don't. This story has gotten so much less coverage in the media than so many other less deserving stories.

CLICK HERE to link to a Reuters article about Malala.

And here's an excerpt from the story. Read on for the definition of courage:

LONDON (Reuters) - Malala Yousufzai, the Pakistani girl who drew global attention after being shot in the head by the Taliban for advocating girls' education, returned to school on Tuesday in Britain where she has been treated for her injuries.
Yousufzai, 15, has become an international figure as a symbol of resistance to Taliban efforts to deny women's rights and is even among nominees for this year's Nobel Peace Prize.
