Once I met a girl who had a similar but happier story, and one thing I remember she said was that her story was not unique... Something must be done, 'Cause she's not the only one... No matter what her country, She craves the same opportunities. To learn, To play, To be safe, To be free. Since today is the UN's first Day Of The Girl, I am dedicating my song to Malala and I hope she gets better soon! She is my age, and this is her story: http://www.nytimes.com/2012/10/11/opinion/malala-yousafzais-courage.html?_r=0
