Not Just Malala

I often get frustrated when a new news story pushes other stories off the radar.  I also get frustrated when the media focuses only on one or two people when others get ignored or forgotten by the media for various reasons.

I am proud of Malala, and glad she won the Nobel Peace Prize (along with Kailash Satyarthi, another person not well known until this week)

So let's shine some attention on Malala's friends.

They were shot too
