Last evening I was running through Penn Station feeling like a salmon swimming against the stream pushing my way through the masses of commuters when the cover of the current issue of Glamour caught my eye. I mean how can it not? Gold and Lady Gaga oh yeah! I needed some reading material for the ride home and decided to splurge. Well not to long in to flipping through the must I say, very well designed pages, I came across an article on their “Women Of The Year Fund”. This year they are giving the award to Malala Yousafzai the young women who was shot in the face by the Taliban for speaking out against them, and for wanting an eduction. Her story is harrowing, moving and above all inspiring. So if anyone is feeling badly for themselves or having a “bad day” remember Malala, and thank God for all the joys you have in your life. And if you want to pay the joy forward, you join with Glamour and donate $10.00 to the fund which is going directly to Malala’s non profit organization The Malala Fund. The Malala Fund raises money to help children get the education they are entitled to. You can donate by texting MALALA to 50555 or online at glamour.com/WOTY. And to read an interview with Malala please got to glamour.com And remember to always look for and be grateful for the joy in your life and count your blessings.
