Thousands of people have been killed by terrorists and millions injured - I am just one of them. Malala Day is not my day - today is the day of every woman, every boy and every girl who have raised their voice for their rights.

We held a special prayer for Malala in our school assembly and also lit candles. We did not organise any open event because our school and its students still face a security threat.
Mariam Khalid, principal of Khushhal Public School in Pakistan • Discussing her school’s marking of “Malala Day.” After the attempted killing of 15-year-old Malala Yousafzai by the Pakistani Taliban last month, the United Nations called for today to be “a global day of action” in her honor. Vigils are anticipated throughout the world, both recognizing Malala and the cause that nearly killed her, education for girls and women. For her school and classmates, an assembly was held and a prayer given, but they aren’t able to honor openly — fear of reprisal from the Taliban on the occasion prevented the holding of a public event. source
