Peshawar watched in wordless grief--what is the word for pain that assails ordinary mortals when there are 141 funerals in one day? From just one location. Of children. Of teenagers. Of teachers. Of those who had harmed no one. Of dreams severed brutally. Of lives cut short. Of bodies that were charred. Of faces that were unrecognizable.
