Malala Yousafzai: This Is What A Leader Looks Like

The following is complete video of Malala Yousafzai's speech to the United Nations on July 12, 2013 on her 16th birthday. Malala was shot in the head by the Taliban in Pakistan in October of 2012 simply because she was a girl who was seeking an education. What an exceptional leader she continues to be.

Your Left Hip Bone

Caressing your face at the end of a long day
Feeling your hand clasped in mine as we get lost on city trails
Breathing on your neck as we curl up to watch a movie
Heart touching heart as we sit across from each other in serious conversation
Kissing your top lip under a full moon
Brushing back your hair and wiping away your tears
Laying beside you with my hand on your left hip bone 
Waking up wanting to be absolutely no place else.
Touch. I do not want to live without you.
