The Murder (Benazir Bhutto)


It happened last evening
Here, in my city
Near my home....
Murder.
They've killed her...

It is unbelievable!
I cannot put my hand on it
and grasp it with my fingers

The entirety is indigestable...
They've murdered her....
and I am not a zealot,
but wasn't She the very best we had?
...and they've killed her

what the future holds for us?
I know not....
I know not....

(today is Friday, December 28,2007..... Yesterday evening,27th december, former Pakistani prime minister and one of the most prominent leaders, Benazir Bhutto, was assassinated while she was leaving a political rally in Rawalpindi...She was fired upon, and it was followed by a suicide bomb blast....She died, ultimately, from the bullet wounds to her neck)

    She was a beautiful, well educated, intelligent woman who was about to take power in the world. She was an example for women everywhere, as a Muslim woman, she had great courage. It is a miracle she lasted as long as she did. Let us all hope that her death will propel the world forward toward higher ideals. (Report) Reply
