thats sad. after all the death that has brought to them , they make an act of kindness to us for something that would probably be considered a peaceful day over there. im glad a drone operator didnt mistake them lighting candles for fuses.

For a Pakistani's thoughts on an American Tradgedy see above ^

I don't care, just as they don't care about us. We got our own problems to worry about. Are you serious? You think that we should be really concerned about a bunch of civilians dead in a terrorrist attack in Pakistan?

I think this also shows that no matter what god/gods you worship, love and human emotion is what connects us all. An energy MUCH more powerful than anything else we know.

I am humbled as we all should be.

These people have next to nothing to hope for in their daily lives and yet reach out to the innocent deaths of others.

They know the tragedy of innocent children being killed first hand.

Peace

Religion is used to divide and conquer. Human kind is our only true common factor. We'd do well to remember that we are all equal human beings.

Too bad we dont feel their pain. Theres so much blood on our hands...

The day 69 children died


LONDON: It is one of the worst incidents of the entire drones campaign, yet one of the least reported. A CIA strike on a madrassa or religious school in 2006 killed up to 69 children, among 80 civilians.

This is not an isolated incident.

So how many people believe these children took the time to write that message and light those candles?

Honestly tired of seeing these photo ops and having people get "touched" by them.
If you ask me they are nothing more then staged pictures to make people feel warm and fuzzy.

I was moved when I first saw the pic, but then I looked at the whole pic, and it seemed staged because:

- muslims don't light candles (afaik) they beat their chests & wail to show mourning

- the clean lines drawn on the sign to ensure perfect lettering clearly shows adult guidance & not spontaneous sign-making by kids

- the kids don't look that sad or cut-up or shocked

I would like to see people from west do the same thing over pakistani children. I highly doubt that would ever happen...
Nice to see that some people at least cares about others even though they are far away.

When 9/11 happened there were candlelight vigils all over the middle east including a massive one in Iran.

Most cultures adopt what is common for the culture having a problem to express sympathy. Candlelight Vigils are common in the west so it shows solidarity.

Whether it is 'staged' that is debatable and irrelevant. How many kids ask for a picture and help doing something they want to do? Is that also not staged?

They want to blow those candles out, as heart warming as it is, some US drones use thermal imaging.
