The last afternoon before I left the country, we snuck to the rooftop of Lahore High Court to cast a parting glance at the city. The image still remains imprinted. A while ago, I highlighted the photos of rizwan on flickr, who had some amazing - yet routine - captures: perhaps my favorite photo, a close second, and another. All of these images of the Lahore High Court spoke to me of a past that still lingers on in the city of Lahore. Now that the present has finally reached Lahore, that red-bricked building seems to retreat even further into the past.
Up to now, Lahore has been visibly absent from the roster of terror attacks and nonsensical destruction. Perhaps it has becoming a victim of it's own peacefulness? Either way, all Pakistanis are under attack. The question remains: Where do we go from here? fhm
