Pride is indeed a common characteristic that human beings share, which is satisfaction for our own achievements. However, Malala 's pride extends much further, as she uses her pride as combustion to reach her greater goal; provide education for the Pakistani girls. Uniquely, her fulfillment isn 't individualistic, because the young women feels delighted for her family origin rather than feeling joy for her own achievements. This ancestral pride was implemented into her by her parents, as they chose to name the young girl after a woman of importance in their country 's history, "I was named after Malalai of Maiwand, the greatest heroine of Afghanistan" (Malala, 14). Since then, she became eager to follow the steps of her ancestors in trying to change the daily

In response to Geoffrey Shepherds article about the bombings in world war two.

Margaret Sanger Margaret Sanger lived a remarkable life devoted to reform by her slogan “Let every child be a wanted child” (Kasun, 2001). Margaret Sanger’s motivations, life preparations, and accomplishments prove her worth as a figure in the Progressive Era. Motivation Margaret Sanger’s motivations for altruistic efforts make her an important contributor in history. For example, her strong belief that women need information on contraceptives — after being “exposed to the ignorance about birth control” — pushed Sanger to work with everything she could possibly give (Mitgang, 1992). She was focused on the difference that she could make and the lives she could change; the chance of victory kept the fire burning.
While writing The First Salute, her gripping account of the American Revolution, Mrs. Tuchman struggled with the onset of blindness. With help from her daughter, she persevered to complete the volume that included a leader who truly inspired her. In an interview with Bill Moyers, Mrs. Tuchman spoke of how much she admired George Washington’s courage and perseverance despite the enormous obstacles he faced and how she and her daughter encouraged one another with the rallying cry, “remember George.” George Washington, like all effective leaders, communicated an inspiring vision and lived it, valued people and gave them a voice. Under his leadership the colonists pulled off one of history’s greatest upsets by defeating the preeminent military power of their age with an under-trained, under-resourced
Malala employs pathos so that the reader could feel where she is coming from. As a result, she wants the reader to know that education for girls is a very imperative thing. By using vigorous pathos, she gets the reader to fathom that a girl’s education is important and meaningful to them. In the bibliography “I Am Malala” by Malala Yousafzai, the author mentions “Then, when she said I would have to leave my school books behind, I nearly cried, too. I loved school, and all I cared about were my books”.

[She is] grateful for them, but they only remind [her] how much work still needs to be done to achieve the goal of education for every boy and girl. [She doesn’t] want to be thought of as the “girl who was shot by the Taliban” but the “girl who fought for education.” This hints at the idea that her conflict hasn 't been resolved even though her position in it has changed, she still has to fight for education and win in order to see a true resolution, unlike J.

Marian, born June 6,1939, has been an advocate for disadvantaged American for her entire professional life.

Out of curiosity, I continued to do more research on her and what I learned were things that changed my life for the better.

In a 1996 interview with Playboy magazine, Rockwell told Playboy that it was “self defense” for people killing jews. He then stated, “ I don’t believe that for one minute that any 6 million Jews were exterminated; it never happened” (Haley). Even with blatant proof, some people will still deny the whole holocaust just because of hatred towards another nation.
