Quote: “We realize the importance of our voices only when we are silenced.”
Context: Malala was in the hospital. She could not talk because of tubes in her throat. She had to write on paper or act out what she wanted. Also she was going through all of this without her family for a couple days.
This makes me think: I choose this passage because it really made me think. It also made me thankful for my voice. When i read this part I was thinking about how know one really is thankful for the ability to talk. Some people can not talk and some people have to write down or do actions there whole life. Although she was not able to talk for a little bit is still would be hard and it was for her. I loved this quote.
