What a terrible lost to the world is the killing of Benazir Bhutto

Benazir Bhutto was a woman of courage and conviction. When she was Prime Minister of Pakistan she had schools built all over her country. She made hunger, housing and health care her top priorities. What a great lost to the world is the assassination of this heroic woman who sought only to bring peace to her people. May her spirit now at rest serve as a strong influence in the hearts and minds of all the women of the world who are victims of violence, hate, oppression and religious persecution.

The house of Atabei respectfully asks that you pause for a minute of prayer on Saturday, Dec. 29, 2007 at 12noon for the soul of this relative sister in honor of her commitment to peace, and understanding.

This was a very big blow, and I want to praise your warm and thoughtful statement. This was very deeply saddening and the consequences can only be very negative ones. What a loss.

As a Pakistani I am touched by your sentiments. If the world united against the bad people, then there would be hope, and today I see hope in her death as the world unites to mourn her.
