The Lahore that lahore Was

my last blog about Lahore

I wish I could say “Lahore Lahore aie”, but then I would be unfaithful, both to Lahore and my memories of that city of my childhood

remembering october 5

December 4, 2009

tomorrow will be two months to the un wfp islamabad, pakistan bombing, which took the life’s of five people.

two months ago the lives of five families were altered in an unimaginable manner, mine too, as my wife is one of the five.

tomorrow i plan a remembrance meeting at the site of the blast. a short meeting, with a minutes silence, prayers, candles, and tying ribbons to the tree outside the building in memory of the dead and injured.

while we will remember our loved ones for ever, this is my way of keeping the world involved in our fight against terrorism — keep the memory alive, speak, for silence is no longer an option.
