Undated -- During campaign season, we as a nation focus on the nation's problems in our state, our country, and the world.
But we wanted to focus on some solutions -- from children. We hear about kids changing their communities, both locally, and internationally.
In Pakistan, one girl, Malala Yousufzai stood up to the Taliban. Taliban commanders in the Swat Valley, where Malala studied, ordered all girls schools closed three years ago. But Malala launched a campaign to keep them open. She won awards for her bravery, but it also made her a target.
On October 8th, Taliban militants shot Malala in the head as she rode home on the school bus. She survived, and is now being treated for her injuries in England. Doctors say she has moved her hands and legs, but will still need intensive rehab.
Malala's classmates say they'll stay in school and won't let threats from the Taliban scare them. But the Taliban fighters who claim responsibility for shooting her, say they will try to kill her again if she recovers.
