Jon Stewart took on a different tone for last Thursday night’s Daily Show. In the wake of Wednesday’s mass shooting at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, South Carolina, he resolved to a heartfelt reflection on the state of our collective perpetuation of racism in the United States. For the amount of social reach that Stewart has, his candid statements will no doubt go a long way. 

Instead, Stewart chose to focus the bulk of his show on the night’s guest, Malala Yousafzai, the 17-year-old Pakistani won a Nobel Peace Prize for her work advocating for children’s rights and education. “Our guest tonight is an incredible person who suffered unspeakable violence by extremists and her perseverance and determination through that to continue on is an incredible inspiration,” Stewart said. “And to be quite honest with you, I don’t think there’s anyone else in the world that I would rather talk to tonight.”

The teen told Stewart it’s important for regular people to speak up about injustice. “Sometimes we wait for others, and think that Martin Luther should rise among us, and Nelson Mandela should rise among us and speak up for us,” she said. “But we never realize that there are normal humans like us, and if we step forward, we can also bring change just like them.”
