I am sure most of us know the story of Malala Yousefzai who was shot by the Taliban for advocating education for girls. News.

Malala has dedicated her childhood to championing education for girls like her in Pakistan. As she lies in a hospital bed, a tragic victim of Taliban gunmen, let's help make her dream come true.

One part of Pakistan has already started a successful programme of paying families which send their girls to school regularly. But in Malala's province the government is dragging its feet. Senior politicians have offered Malala help, and if we act now we can get them to commit to rolling this out nationwide.

Before the media spotlight moves on, let's raise our voices to demand that the government announces funding for all Pakistani girls who attend school. In days the UN Education Envoy will meet Pakistan's President Zardari and he says hand delivering 1 million signatures will strengthen his case. So let's help make Malala's dream come true and sign this.

Strega - when Sandy hit the East Coast, the website went down. It came back up, but the automated counter is missing. I've sent them two emails about it, but it has never been fixed.

The US has its hands full, but there should be something the World Community could do about Pakistan allowing these barbarous practices.

If Unseen had said that, I wouldn't have believed it for a second!

Clever girl. It's unfortunate that political correctness dictates that she will not be exposed to atheism in a way in which she could exercise reason and choice regarding her beliefs - even thought she was shot be fanatics driven by their religious beliefs. Imagine the power she could wield were she to say, "Through education I've learned the truth and I encourage everyone to investigate for themselves the value of the supernatural - or it's lack of it."
