One Three Two Plus Nine.

Where does it end?

132 kids and 9 staff as well

killed for no reason,no story to tell.

trying to educate and further their lives

slaughtered for nothing,ending young lives

religion is a subject that's with us all

decides a persons destiny,and how they will fall.

religious extremism,killing for a cause

it's barbaric and wicked,deserves no applause.

these sadistic evil men,execute live on TV

proclaiming to have a nation that is totally free.

hows "choice "called free,if a man ends up dead

psychopathic maniacs,they're sick in the head.

journalists,charity workers,killing favours no breed

giving TV coverage,their egos we feed.

Taliban ideology is warped beyond belief

terrorised their own people,caused constant grief.

there's no justification to take lives for a cause

a law unto themselves,makes a mockery of their cause.

they will never be given a seat ,at the table of peace

for serenity is an alien concept,their wickedness won't cease

deciding futures with guns instead of debate

no wonder their kids grow up to hate.

a worldwide problem that threatens every state

between peace and war,death is all they rate.

Live on TV.

I watched every hour pass as more bad news came across the airwaves.i prayed the total would stop rising the more time passed.sadly it didn't stop till 132 children had lost their lives,and nine dedicated staff too.what's the world coming to that in the 21st Century these acts of evil are still allowed to happen,normally going unpunished aswell.it's a sad sign of the times when countries take nothing to do with smaller countries when acts like this happen,they only seem interested if there's something at the end of the line for them.

This is what it's about.

Evil rears its ugly head.

Evil rears its ugly head

132 children end up dead.

learning,reading,doing no wrong

then evil bangs its lethal gong.

leaving carnage where peace should live

learned children,willing to give.

excited and happy,learning to go far

evil struck hard,an everlasting scar.

Maybe Happier Views Ahead.

World Takes A Stand.

this is a headline I'd love to see,but probably never will in my lifetime.a life where the religious tormentors can't dictate who has a right to be educated,for fear of death hanging over their heads.kids should be allowed to be educated no matter what country they come from,and there should never be any fear at the thought of going to school.school is the most natural process in most of our cultures.we are very lucky in that sense.its about time these kids had the luck rub off on them.

World task force.

the perpetrators of this heinous crime should be hunted down till justice kicks their doors in.they deserve no shelter for their actions.the world should join forces,and set up a task force to deal with these religious zealots.theres no place in a civilised world for these type of people to exist.they are abnormal and brainwashed by certain religious leaders and they take words from their religions readings and twist them to suit themselves,therefore in some sick way justifying it in their own heads.

Koran,Bible,whatever your beliefs.

im not a religious person by any stretch,I can safely assume through my research that NO religion or religious books,bible,Koran for religions preach hatred.nor do they try to justify killing in any way shape or form.Christianity like Islam and others like them are religions of peace,they don't have a recipe for killing within their pages.clearly some people are interpreting the words in their own way to justify the killing of innocent people.its happened since the beginning of time,I don't see it ending any time soon.

Every child has rights.

every child has the right to a life,

every child has the right to education.

it should never be determined

by evil or intimidation

by dictators,or by the minority

a basic right to happiness,

be decided by the majority.



Kids just want to learn.its not a crime.

Time comes.

time rolls on,justice can become real

let punishment roll,incarceration the deal.

live by the sword,you die the same way

eye for an eye,ive heard victims say.

Happy while learning.

Totally agree with the hub. One of terrorist entered in class room and ordered first ten position holders to come out. Then he shot them all saying, "You people after education prepare material for our death. You better die now. And don't worry my children, you are all martyr and going to Jannah". This statement was given by one of the surviving child.

You clearly presented how education is right of children. I would like to thank you to highlight such important issue. Up
