Nobel Peace prize nomination

I found this link on a UK web site. I'm sure everyone is familiar with her story and I've posted it on Facebook but I thought you folks on this site would also like the opportunity to vote for her. I believe she richly deserves this award, don't you?

That may be true Deepsix, but they still put a nice chunk of change in the winners pockets. And I think this little lady deserves something besides a bullet in her head, and I'd be willing to bet that you do also. No?

I'm not smart enough to know how to go about doing it, but maybe she can be re-nominated? And can it be awarded posthumously? It never hurt to have more than one nominee. She certainly deserves the recognition.

OK, I'm down for a dime - how 'bout a dozen for Malala?
