The Orphan I Am Chronicles – 128

Leave the Children Out of It, Please.

In 1971, Marvin Gaye released one of his most powerful songs, What’s Going On? The decade that surrounded this socially masterpiece that brought injustice into the forefront as well as many other disturbing, unacceptable social issues. That was the 70’s, as much as it was relevant then, the song is even more relevant today.

Earlier today, another tragic attack on innocent people (children) took place. Seven Taliban terrorists attacked a school ( an army public school ) in Peshawar, Pakistan, murdering 141 people, most of them children. I’m not writing this while ignoring the many other terrorist crimes that may or may not have been committed by one or more countries in that region. Children are not collateral damage, they are not pawns to force one countries hand in favor of another. These premeditated attacks in the name of whatever supreme being they believe in are ever-growing and heartless.

What I see in these news reports here saddens me, it makes me question if the people in charge truly treasure their future at all? How can they? When the most important parts of their future, the world’s future, is gunned down while being educated. Tragic and sad,

“What’s Going On?”
