Deeply saddened by what happened in Baluchistan1 yesterday and my heart literally hurts. The burning down of Jinnah’s2 historic residence in Ziarat where he spent his last days, followed by the attack on a bus carrying female students killing 11 of those girls on the spot. The tragedy continued as terrorists blew up explosives at the hospital where the injured were being taken to, took hostages and killing at least 11 more people. Go here to read details of the tragic events.

My heart breaks for all those that were killed, for those girls that were going to college, for their parents, for the ones that lost their loved ones, and for the lives that changed forever. My prayers are with all those that are hurting because of this tragedy. How long will this cycle of violence continue, I wonder. So many lives lost, so many lives changed. Such hatred, such disrespect for human life. It is heartbreaking.
Wishing for a safer world for our kids. Thanks for reading.
FYI: 1Baluchistan is one of the four provinces of Pakistan. 2Jinnah, or Quaid-e-Azam as he is lovingly remembered is considered the founder of Pakistan.
