Pakistan is burning–Pakistan is burning, blasts everyday, air raids on one part of Pakistan everynight are a routine here. HOw can we live normally? How can our kids go to school? HOw can they go and play in the parks? How can we go for shopping or outing?
OUr minds are gripped by fear, our thoughts are crippled. We can not live in present happily nor can we plan for our future. What type of life is this?
When we say we are at war, these are not mere words but is a reality we are living.
when we look at the faces of our children our hearts is filled with fear. What does future hold for them, fear, bombs, air raids, burns. Then why does the rest of the world children play with “toys”?
