Just Another Statistic

Just Another Statistic

“Twin bomb attacks on a paramilitary force academy in north-west Pakistan have killed 80 people”

“A suicide bombing at Pakistan’s premier aeronautical manufacturing complex killed seven people.”

A powerful explosion apparently detonated by a suicide bomber in the eastern city of Lahore on Thursday killed at least 23 people

We, you and I, read the news, sigh over the pictures…and forget all about them.

I wonder if someday, I will be another statistic, another photograph in the growing list of “Collateral damage” that my friends will read about in their morning newspaper or watch in the International news and then…grab their coffee and go off to work.
