How important you think education is.

I think we all take our education for granted. We’re supposed to utilize it’s resources especially if given the chance. Education gives you the skills to succeed in life academically, politically, socially, economically. Not to say that every little thing we’ve all learned in the school system is fundamental, but without education, how do we progress? Without education, where would we be today? It’s unlikely we’d have cars, planes, trains, and other modes of transportation. I think most of us take advantage of it. It kills me how I slave over trying to graduate college and there’s people with the money and resources to go and all they do is party until they flunk out or end up getting knocked up and drop out. But I know that I’m lucky, because I’ve had the opportunity to get an education. Not everyone does.

Recently in the news, a fourteen year old girl in Taliban, Malala, has fought high and low to be able to recieve an education. She is  fourteen years old and had been shot in the head and neck by Taliban militants because she wanted to go to school. Her only “crime” was openly advocating education for girls and wanting other girls like her to fulfill their right to attend school.

This girl risks her life to go to school while the rest of us moan and complain about getting up for a eight am class.

Be thankful for what you have.
