Man’s Inhumanity to Man


A suicide bomber killed at least 65 people, mostly women and children, at a park in Lahore today (Easter Sunday) in an attack claimed by a Pakistani Taliban faction which said it had targeted Christians.

There’s so much wrong in that one sentence – children, a park, Easter Sunday, Christians.

The bombing is further proof of what Robert Burns said over 200 years ago in his poem, Man Was Made To Mourn: A Dirge

Man’s inhumanity to man
Makes countless thousands mourn!

Today’s blast makes millions mourn, and to borrow a word from the gun control movement,

  1. Jim, I enjoyed a wonderful holiday with large extended family. Lots of laughs and love. I was so busy having fun that this is the first I’ve heard about this. Terrible to think that others died for doing exactly what I did today. Thoughts and prayers to those affected.


    1. Sounds like you and your family had a wonderful Easter, I hope the survivors of the attack can learn to celebrate future Easter holidays the way it was meant to be celebrated.
