Massacre in Peshawar

Really, is there anything that can be said? When children are singled out and slaughtered, and teachers and administrators are burnt alive, there’s nothing can be said.

These children were not the “elite” – they were middle class whose parents sacrificed much in the hope of educating them for a better life.

Rest in peace.

The streets of heaven will be crowded tonight.

In memory of the children of the Army Public School, Warsak. And the many innocents who have gone before.

If there’s one glimmer of light here – because I expect the Pakistani public and politicians to forget quickly, their memories being notoriously short – it’s the outpouring of concern from good people.

Thank you for #IndiawithPakistan and #illridewithyou. Sometimes the worst tragedies also bring out our common humanity.
