Children's Corner: 365 Days of Gratitude with Muskan Virk

When life gets a bit heavy and dark, it can be difficult to see and remember the things we should be grateful for. Sometimes, we need something, or someone to remind us. At the age of 6, Muskan Virk heard the term 'gender equality' and asked her parents to explain what that meant. When she learned of the injustice and inequality that so many face every day, she was quite upset about it, and began to see the darkness in the world.

It wasn't enough for Muskan to simply learn about these issues, she wanted to make a difference, and declared that "This world needs to be changed and I'm the one that could change it!" Muskan proceeded to fundraise $1,200 through her school, who donated it to the Malala Fund. Meera, Muskan's mother, could see that the knowledge her daughter was gaining was quite heavy on her young soul, and so gave h er a journal, and encouraged Muskan to write down all the things she was grateful for, and to see how many good things she could find. A little over a year later, Muskan handed the journal back, and Meera was delighted to find 450 gratitudes! They both were inspired to share them with the world, and so chose 365 to create this beautiful book.
