Angelina Jolie Blogs About Malala Yousafzai & Her Kids

Angelina Jolie has written an essay on how she discussed the tragic shooting of 14-year-old Pakistani activist Malala Yousafzai with her children.

“I felt compelled to share Malala’s story with my children. It was difficult for them to comprehend a world where men would try to kill a child whose only “crime” was the desire that she and others like her be allowed to go to school,” Angelina wrote.

“Our 8-year-old [Pax] suggested that the world build a statue for Malala, and fittingly create a reading nook near it. Our 6-year-old [Shiloh] asked the practical question of whether Malala had any pets, and if so, who would take care of them? She also asked about Malala’s parents and if they were crying,” she continued.

Head on over to The Daily Beast to read the full essay Angelina wrote about the issue.
