Watch Malala Give the Absolute Best Answer to Jon Stewart's Hardest Question

Malala's entire interview on Jon Stewart last night was incredibly inspiring, but her answer to one very difficult question, made everyone's (including the host's) jaw drop. When asked about the moment when she realized that the Taliban was making her a target, she explained that her initial reaction was anger. However, it didn't take long for her to understand that you can't fight evil with more evil; you need to be smarter than that. Find out what she had to say.


Wow. After that answer, who is surprised that Jon Stewart admited to wanting to adopt the young peacemaker? "I know your father is backstage and is very proud of you, but would he be mad if I adopted you?" he asked, "Because you sure are swell."

I'm sure many of us watching are thinking exactly the same thing.

Are you also in total admiration of Malala too? Let me know on Twitter and Facebook.
