Grammy-winning musician Shakira took the stage in England on Monday – but not to sing. In a speech at Oxford University, she put out a call for universal access to education as a tool for world peace. "That is how I want the youth of 2060 to see us: That our mission for global peace consisted of sending 30,000 educators to Afghanistan, not 30,000 soldiers," said Shakira, who was invited by the Oxford Student Union. "That in 2010, world education became more important than world domination."
