“Guns of Darkness! Why would I not curse you?
You turned love-filled homes into broken debris” (Pashto Couplet from Book ‘I am Malala’)
“The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit” (Psalm 34:18)
Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.” (Matthew 5:4)
My Dear bereaved Mothers, Sisters and Brothers in Pakistan,
We cannot wipe away your tears but we want to let you know that we weep with you and feel your pain.
We are shocked and pained to know about the murder of 132 innocent students and nine staff members who were killed on 16th December 2014 Tuesday by Taliban terrorists who entered a school in Peshawar. We are horrified to know that teachers were believed to be burnt alive while students were forced to watch as Taliban gunmen stormed the school in Pakistan. We can only imagine what trauma these innocent children might have gone through and what trauma you all and your country is going through now.
