Yesterday marked exactly one year since a Taliban gunman boarded Malala Yousafzai's tiny school bus in the remote Swat Valley of Pakistan, called out her name, and put a bullet through the left side of her head.
"I'm not sad about anything that happened on that day" she told Fairfax Media by phone from New York. "It was just part of my life and I must learn from that. Now I am more strong, I have got more courage than I had before. And on October 9 we will celebrate, not that on this day Malala was shot, but that on this day Malala is surviving."
If that quote alone doesn't make your spirit soar then wait until you hear the humbling, inspiring and articulate way she describes her experience to Jon Stewart in this clip from the latest episode of Daily Show. Later in the interview Stewart asks if he can adopt Malala. You're about to feel the same way.
