Re "Girl's shooting rallies her cause," Oct. 14

Malala Yousafzai's story of courage and determination will always be as vivid in my mind as the picture taken in 1972 of the burned, naked little Vietnamese girl, Phan Thi Kim Phuc, fleeing her village after a napalm attack.

When Kim Phuc reached safety, she asked for water; Malala, a 14-year-old Pakistani girl who was shot by a Taliban gunman, is asking for the right for girls to receive an education. Are these requests unreasonable?
