Drats! This stuff never happens near my home.
Christian day center normally has the doors open and no armed guards.
In a Muslim country I see a huge target sign on them.

Terminally stupid. Operating a “faith-based day care center” in Kabul without security is just offering the kids to murderers.
By the grace of God, the kids are alive today. Maybe the parents will figure it out that they better do something different from here on.

It really was a suicide mission. Couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch of baby-killers.

Now that made me laugh out loud! ‘Roots of Peace’ are heavily armed and ready for combat. Excellent!

Not paying strangers to take care of your children would be a great place to start.
