Today, I woke up to the news of horrific bombings in churches and hotels in Sri Lanka, the country of my birth. It has saddened me so much. As far as I know, members of my immediate family are safe, but, it pains me to know that so much violence can be inflicted on people and for what? Buildings can be rebuilt, but shattered lives can't.
May those who were killed rest in peace. May those who were injured be healed. May those who lost family and loved ones find solace. May those whose lives were forever affected in one way or another find the strength to go on. May the people in my country of birth find peace, unity, and harmony.
