There has been, as you say, a suicide bombing there roughly every five days. The fighting is not just against the West, it includes Muslims from one sect fighting those of another. This is a place which does not, and has not, known peace in their lifetimes.
These children did not know what it was like to live in a place where you can walk out the door and not fear being killed, they did not know what it was like to live in a place where equality and tolerance were accepted and ignorance and hate denied, but they wanted to create that place...a peaceful Afghanistan.
Given the situation, what do you think should be done? Striving for peace is a good thing, but what does it mean? Pull all Western influences from the Middle-East? Persuade Muslims to stop fighting each other? Stop the violent spread of Islam into Africa somehow?
I say to all the victims of this tragedy and their families, please continue and strive for peace and don't be weighed down by the chains of hate which criminals wear with pride, continue to spread the message of tolerance those children who died that day expressed throughout their short lives.
