Last night there was a well attended gathering at Du Pont Circle in Washington DC. Many faiths, ethnicities and ages all came together to remember those who had been massacred at their school desks in Peshawar the day before.
Candles were lit. Heads were bowed. Tears were shed.
The memory of those murdered at weddings and in their homes by drones and by death squads danced round the edge of the memorial.
All the innocents have value and all were joined in hoping for a better world for those innocents who remain.
