IT DOES -- IT SOUNDS MAGNIFICENTAND IT'S HEARTBREAKING BECAUSE

YOU SEE WHAT THESE CHILDREN WANTAND WHAT THESE PEOPLE WANT IS TO

JUST LIVE IN PEACE WITHOUTHAVING THIS IMPOSED ON THEM.

AND I THINK WE DON'T KNOW WHATTO DO TO HELP, YOU KNOW, THERE

ARE PASSAGES IN THE BOOK ABOUTTHE UNITED STATES.

AND WE COME OUT GREAT.

[ LAUGHTER ]BUT THERE IS -- YOU KNOW, THERE

ARE ATTACKS IN SWAT AND IN THOSEAREAS, DRONES, AND THEY TALK

ABOUT A MAN A C.I.A. AGENT WHOSHOT TWO MEN IN LAHORE.

ABOUT A MAN A C.I.A. AGENT WHOSHOT TWO MEN IN LAHORE.

WE HAVE A COMMON WANT AND DESIREBUT PERHAPS ARE NOT

ACCOMPLISHING IT IN THE MANNERTHAT SHOWS THE PEOPLE HOW WE

FEEL BUT IN SOME WAYS WE DON'TKNOW WHAT ELSE TO DO WHAT IS

YOUR THOUGHT ON THAT?

>> I THINK THAT THE PEOPLE OFAMERICA, THE UNITED STATES, THEY

TRULY SUPPORT PEACE AND THEYSAY THAT WE MUST NOT FIGHT

AGAINST WAR THROUGH WAR.

THEY BELIEVE DIALOGUE IS THEBEST WAY.

WE MUST TRY TO FIND A SOLUTIONFOR IT.

IN MY OPINION, THE SOLUTION THATWOULD WORK TO FIGHT ALL THESE

WARS AND ALL THESE PROBLEMS THATPEOPLE ARE FACING IS ONLY

EDUCATION.

BECAUSE YOU CAN STOP WAR FOR ASECOND BUT YOU DON'T KNOW IT

WILL START AGAIN OR NOT.

WE'VE SEEN FIRST WORLD WAR,SECOND WORLD WAR AND I THINK

THIRD WORLD WAR IS COMING BUT IBELIEVE WE MUST STOP IT NOW.

I DON'T WANT TO SEE A THIRDWORLD WAR IN THIS WORLD AGAIN.

THE BEST WAY TO FIGHT AGAINSTTHIS WAR IS EDUCATION.

BECAUSE AS YOU CAN SEE THECHILDREN ARE SUFFERING FROM THE

TERRORISM.

THEY ARE SUFFERING FROM CHILDLABOR AND CHILD TRAFFICKING.

THEY ARE SUFFERING FROM THECULTURE TRADITIONS.

THERE'S NOT ONLY ONE ISSUE WEARE FACING, TOO.

MANY OTHERS AS WELL.

EDUCATION IS THE BEST WAY.

PEOPLE ARE THINKING DOES GOINGTO SCHOOL, LEARNING CHEMISTRY

AND PHYSICS AND MATH.

AND THAT'S IT.

GOING TO SCHOOL IS NOT ONLYLEARNING ABOUT DIFFERENT

SUBJECTS IT TEACHES YOUCOMMUNICATION, IT TEACHES YOU

HOW TO LIVE A LIFE.

IT TEACHES YOU ABOUT HISTORY ANDHOW SCIENCE IS WORKING AND OTHER

THAN THAT YOU LEARN ABOUTEQUALITY BECAUSE STUDENTS ARE

PROVIDING THE SAME -- IT TEACHESSTUDENTS HOW TO LIVE WITH OTHERS

TOGETHER HOW TO ACCEPT EACH OFTHE LANGUAGE AND TRADITIONS AND

EACH OF THEIR RELIGIONS.

IT ALSO TEACHES US JUSTICE.

IT ALSO TEACHES US RESPECT.

IT TEACHES US HOW TO LIVETOGETHER.

THAT'S WHY I SUPPORT THE -- ISUPPORT THE IDEA OF SENDING

CHILDREN TO SCHOOL BECAUSE IT ISTHE BEST WAY TO FIGHT TERRORISM.

AND I WANT PEOPLE TO SUPPORT USIN THIS CAUSE AND THROUGH THEUS

MALALAFOUNDATION WE WANT TO OFFER

EDUCATION OF GIRLS IN THEDEVELOPING COUNTRIES ESPECIALLY

IN SYRIA NOW.

THEY ARE SUFFERING.

THEY ARE HOMELESS NOW.

WE WANT TO HELP CHILDREN INAFGHANISTAN BECAUSE THEY'VE BEEN

SUFFERING FROM TERRORISM FORDECADES.

WE WANT TO HELP THE CHILDREN OFINDIA AS WELL BECAUSE THEY ARE

VICTIMS OF CHILD LABOR.

I THINK THERE ARE THINGS AND THESOLUTION IS SIMPLE.

EDUCATION.
