Malala Yousafzai on the Daily Show

It's hard not to get choked up while watching the incredible answer about Pacifism 16-year-old Malala Yousafzai gave to Jon Stewart last night on the Daily Show. Stewart himself seems to be struggling for words, but ultimately comes up with a witty follow-up: "Would your father mind if I adopted you?" Watch below.

Yousafzai, a Pakistani advocate for women's and children's educational rights, survived a brutal Taliban assassination attempt last year. After being shot in the head and neck when Taliban gunmen opened fire on her school bus, Yousafzai made a miraculous recovery in Birmingham, England, and bravely continues to campaign for access to safe education for Pakistani children.

She is now poised to become the youngest Nobel Peace Prize laureate ever, with that announcement coming on Friday (October 11).

Meanwhile, filmmaker Davis Guggenheim ("Waiting for Superman") got underway on a documentary this past summer on Yousafzai's trip to the UN General Assembly for her sixteenth birthday.

    I wish the youth of today would idolize strong young women like Malala instead of Kim/Paris/Britney/Lindsey/Demi/Amanda/Khloe and all the other vapid young "entertainers" who advocate selfishness and conspicuous consumption. The world would be a much better place.
