On Wednesday, Piers Morgan looked beyond "Only in America" to acknowledge 14 year-old blogger and human rights activist Malala Yousufazi.
"Malala Yousufazi lives in the notorious Sawat Valley in Pakistan, where the Taliban threaten to behead girls who go to school, study or watch T.V. Showing astonishing courage, intelligence and eloquence, Malala defied the madmen by speaking out for the rights of children, and using the internet to spread her message."
Malala, who won Pakistan's National Peace Award in 2011, was gunned down in a brutal assassination attempt by the Taliban on Monday.
"Of all the despicable acts committed by the Taliban in Afghanistan and Pakistan, has anything quite exceeded their attempts to murder a 14-year-old girl yesterday for speaking out against their brutal activities?" asked Morgan.
A Pakistani Taliban spokesperson left a disturbing remark regarding their attempt at murder saying "If she survives this time, she won't next time."
"Remember those words next time somebody questions what right the American military, together with allied forces, had taking on these evil thugs," said Morgan. "It wasn't just because they harbour terrorists like Al-Qaeda. It was because they think it's fine to murder 14-year-old girls for speaking their mind."
Honoring Malala and her heroic work, Morgan ended the segment with Malala herself and her own words.
"I should raise my voice," said Malala. "Because If I didn’t raise my voice now, so when will I raise my voice?"
