It was one fine October. The people of the small village of Swat were enjoying their day, going by their normal routine
Among the many other primary school kids, walking to school too was Malala.
It was just another ordinary day at school, until suddenly the tables started shaking, the ground was quaking; "Earthquake!" They screamed.
After what seemed an eternity the students and teachers ran out with teary eyes. They just wanted their families.
Children, Uncles, Unties, Cousins all cried as the earthquake had destroyed their homes, and fatally injured family.
They had already been through a lot, why more?
Malala came home to her mum repetitively saying the prayers of the holy Quran. She prayed that God must protect them and all their people. Malala stayed at her mothers side and weeped with her until they settled.
