I was driving past a business here in the Houston Heights, when I glimpsed this painted on the side of the building. I recognized that iconic WWII poster before I realized it was not just any woman, but 14 year old Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani girl who was attacked for wanting an education. The words next to her are her quote, ( “I don’t mind if I have to sit on the floor at school.) All I want is education. And I’m afraid of no one.”
I want her to president of the world.

Ok, this…this is so touchingly human and wonderful. Fuck yeah.
We’re all doing this, yes? Because we’re breathing human beings with souls, correct? Good.
Happy 614 Day, Columbus. Please make me proud of you.
