Attacks in Pakistan

By now many of my friends in the US may have heard about the politically driven incident in Pakistan, where a former Prime Minister just got assasinated. I just wanted to let everyone know that thank God we're fine, although geographically we're less than 30 miles from the place where the attack occured, and the death toll is probably over 20 people, due to a suicide bombing immediately following the shooting. There is concern about some reactionary riots in the next few days, but I don't know how daily life will be affected. The best we can do is be cautious where we travel over the next week or so that we are here, and pray for safety. My heart goes out to all the innocent people who suffered due to the attacks in two separate locations, both targeting prominent political figures who were involved in the upcoming elections. Pakistan is a beautiful country, that has been troubled almost since its inception in 1947. Please pray for peace in this country and the rest of the world.
