Malala goes on 'The Daily Show' and brings a powerful message with her.

In 2012, Malala Yousafzai survived an attempt on her life by the Taliban. In her appearance on "The Daily Show," she had a message that seemed particularly appropriate in light of the recent events in South Carolina.

Nobel Laureate Malala Yousafzai appeared on the June 18, 2015, edition of "The Daily Show" to discuss her upcoming documentary.

She's currently promoting "He Named Me Malala," a documentary about her life and advocacy, directed by Davis Guggenheim ("An Inconvenient Truth" and "Waiting for Superman").

In 2012, Yousafzai survived an assassination attempt by the Taliban. In 2014, Yousafzai won the Nobel Peace Prize for her human rights and education activism.

Her appearance happened to coincide with the first show after the tragic attacks in Charleston, South Carolina.

During his monologue, Jon Stewart found himself at a loss for words, devastated by the news of Charleston's attacks.

In one quote, Yousafzai helped restore Stewart's hope in the power of a single voice.

The full, powerful two-part interview is worth watching in its entirety, and you can do that below.

As a child, I spent countless hours with Mister Rogers. I sang along as he put on his cardigan and sneakers, watched him feed his fish, and followed his trolley into the Land of Make Believe. His show was a like a calm respite from the craziness of the world, a beautiful place where kindness always ruled. Even now, thinking about the gentle, genuine way he spoke to me as a child is enough to wash away the angst of my adult heart.

Fred Rogers was goodness personified. He dedicated his life not just to the education of children, but to their emotional well-being. His show didn't teach us letters and figures—he taught about love and feelings. He showed us what community looks like, what accepting and including different people looks like, and what kindness and compassion look like. He saw everyone he met as a new friend, and when he looked into the camera and said, "Hello, neighbor," he was sincerely speaking to every person watching.

Recently, Upworthy shared a tweet thread by author A.R. Moxon who created a brilliant metaphor to help men understand the constant anxiety that potential sexual abuse causes women.

He did so by equating sexual assault to something that men have a deep-seeded fear of: being kicked in the testicles.

An anonymous man in England who goes by the Twitter handle @manwhohasitall has found a brillintly simple way of illustrating how we condescend to women by speaking to men the same way.

Army veteran Seth Kastle had everything going for him when he came home from serving 16 years overseas. That's why it was so confusing to him when his life began to fall apart.

He had a job, a loving wife, family, and friends. He knew things would be different when he moved back to Kansas, but he didn't think they'd be that different. But he felt an extreme anger building up inside, a fire inside his chest that he couldn't explain or get rid of.

Kastle was unknowingly suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), an anxiety disorder that can develop after experiencing or witnessing a traumatic event — like war.
