A Prayer for Peshawar

When you send your kid to school, you don't expect a massacre to happen there. That's why it's so inhuman and horrifying! 

This has been a heartbreaking day for most of us who have heard about the massacre of innocent school children in Peshawar by terrorists. I sat at my desk, feeling the tears leap to my eyes. Over 100 students are reported to have been killed, shot at mostly in the face and head....I can't get over it.


Think of the mothers whose lives have snapped today. No mother can ever be or feel the same again when a part of her, more precious than her own life, is ripped out. 

It's not just the children who died today.

It's their mothers too.

Today, my prayer is for Peshawar: the innocent children who died and their families who have to find strength from within to accept this reality. 

Read these tweets. You will understand what I mean.

I pray to God for the well-being and peace of each and every mother in Peshawar, whose loss we cannot even begin to fathom. 

But we know their pain. We can feel it too.

Say a little prayer for the innocent souls as they journey on to another realm: Go in peace, little ones, we are all praying for you because that's the best we can do.
