As Pakistanis, we should now be well versed with disasters. Bomb blasts, terrorist attacks, air plane crashes, military operations, and natural disasters you name it and we are seeing it all. While we pray for the departed souls in these disasters, we must not forget the good old saying, If we do not learn from past mistakes we are doomed to repeat them. Thus, it is time we spoke against atrocities of Taliban and other violent elements with full intensity. We should also criticise negligence in actions that result in so many deaths. It is important for us to realize the price of human life. We the masses must unite and speak with one voice. That is the only way we would be heard. -ETHSAM WAHEED, Islamabad, July 30.
