For who among us could presume to pity her?
Benazir Bhutto lived her life exactly as she believed: an idealist and a pragmatist, a fighter and a pacifist, a mother, a wife, and a leader of nations. She walked among her people while her opponents hid behind walls and guns.
Every political party in Pakistan, including Musharref’s, is under assault by religious extremists; suicide bombers attack almost every day, trading their pathetic, wasted lives for a shot at personal glory. They avoid the faces of the dead and the complexities of living in the real world, and they use an entirely human perversion of faith as their excuse.
Look at her killers. Look at her. Look at the people who lead us now and remember: evil is willing to kill for a cause. Good is only willing to die for one.
