YES YES YES!! I love this. FOREVER REBLOG!!
YOU GO GIRL!
I’m going to point out again for those who don’t click links: This young woman was shot in the head and neck by the Taliban for speaking out on behalf of women’s rights in Pakistan.
She is fifteen years old. She is also still alive. It is likely that she will suffer lifelong language and coordination difficulties given where she was shot (left side of her head) but she hasn’t given up her fight.
While Islamic clerics in Pakistan have issued a Fatwa against the men who tried to murder her, the Taliban has re-iterated its intent to murder her and her father.
I can’t express how much of a hero this woman is. She’s only fifteen, and yet she’s faced such impossible odds, and she’s still fighting. I just wish there was something I could do to help her.
Standing there at the stage door to the rest of your life. Time to dip your toe into the deep end. Try things. Say hi already. Laugh a lot. Mess up, apologize, mess up again. Hug people. Take chances. Trust yourself. Lose things. Get over it. Hold your friends close. Gather your strength. Gain wisdom and beautiful stories. Be brave, and you’ll have the time of your life.

“I was singing FEARLESS, literally the line that goes “In a storm, in my best dress” and I felt a raindrop on my shoulder. I remember thinking ‘oh my god, everyone’s going to leave and I’ll be playing to like 10 people’ but everyone ended up staying and it ended up making the crowd 10x more energetic. It was one of those nights I will never forget.” - Taylor Swift on playing Gillette Stadium in the pouring rain.
Fearless swifties Taylor, fearless swifties.
