This week the world was introduced to a glorious -- if unlikely -- new couple, united for all time by the matchmakers at the Norwegian Nobel Committee: Malala Yousafzai and Kailash Satyarthi, recipients of this year's Nobel Peace Prize. She's a 17-year-old Pakistani Muslim; he's a 60-year-old Indian Hindu. Together they're being honored for leading the fight for children's rights -- and against extremism -- worldwide. Malala, of course, is already well-known. After being shot by the Taliban in 2012 for trying to educate herself, she courageously spoke up even louder. "They can only shoot a body; they cannot shoot my dreams," she said. Satyarthi, meanwhile, leads a consortium called the Global March Against Child Labor, a cause he's been championing for decades. There's a lot wrong with the world, and the committee's inspired choice is a reminder -- and a challenge -- that we can all do more to make it a better place.
