I met a little girl and boy today. Shy, yet polite, holding out their hands for handshakes and whispering salaams to the grown-ups they met.
Four hours later they were killed in a bomb blast in the city.
32 people have been killed today. Thousands have died in the last few years alone in Pakistan in acts of terrorism. Mothers, fathers, cousins, friends, colleagues, brothers, sisters, acquaintances. Some we knew, some we never will.
