Today, there was a massacre in a Pakistani school. The Taliban attacked a school full of children. I could hardly wrap my brain around the story. All I saw were little boys and very young men on the TV screen. I know for sure that the Taliban values boys more than they value girls. I remember a member of the Taliban shot Malala Yousafzhai a few years ago. She advocated the education of girls. The next thing you know, she was shot in the head. She lived. In fact, she recently received a Nobel Prize for Peace. So, why would the Taliban attack a school that was primarily for boys? I could hardly process the idea. I now know that some of the Pakistani military have tried to rout out the Taliban from their province. The Taliban chose not to retreat. Instead they chose to attack a school full of little boys because their fathers were part of that Pakistani military.
