Our kids are spending too much time in front of screens, and too little time reading, talking, exploring, being active, or just engaged in good old-fashioned quiet time simply staring out the window day-dreaming.
Do you remember the first time you realised that one day you were going to die? Death, with all its finality, and the fact that with each passing day we are all getting inexorably closer to our own ultimate passing, is a biggie. And one we rarely discuss... let alone think too much about.
In an age when we fear that the whole famous-for-being-famous culture is robbing our youth of the truly inspiring role models of their generation, be assured, this humble young woman in pink is there. Malala is there.
