As I busily prepare for school to start in two weeks this is a harrowing reminder of Pakistan's situation. I guess I could talk about how grateful I am for my circumstances, but this isn't about me. It's about them...

To remember that amongst all the problems in the world right now there are boys and girls who are scared that their lives will end while they are at school today.

Education should be free from fear and certainly free from death.
