    Default Nobel Peace Prize for Malala

    http://www.change.org/en-CA/petition...ize-for-malala

    On October 9, 2012, 15-year old Malala Yusufzai was shot in the head by a Taliban gunman in response to her campaign against the destruction of girls schools in Pakistan. In the face of terror, Malala risked her life to speak out for the rights of girls everywhere. Malala's bravery has sparked a global movement and we believe the Nobel Foundation should give her the Nobel Peace Prize.
    There's a video, and more in the article. This petition currently has 132,846 signatures.

    I think that when someone does something heroic, it should be highly publicized to inspire others to act heroically as well. Feel free to support this if you agree.

    I think it should be given to someone who is still alive. What she did was brave and all that, but one thing that comes with the nobel peace price is that the person who gets it, also gets a lot of more influence to his/hers causes in the future.

    When did she die?
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    She's not dead. I guess INTP took "shot in the head" to mean dead.
