There is this theory that all violence is ultimately fear. Apart from recreational violence, usually perpetrated by young men in groups and often under the influence of alcohol or drugs, I have yet to find a form of violence that isn’t.
Still, reality keeps being more fantastic that fiction because who would imagine being afraid of a fifteen year old girl?
Yes, they are there: adult men afraid of a fifteen year old, afraid enough to shoot her twice at close range…
…and fail to kill her. You have to be very, very wrong -and know it!- to feel that afraid of a fifteen year old.
As I write this, the news has it that Malala Yousafzai is doing very well, considering her circumstances.
