“In Urdu, we have a saying: Aik lari main pro kay rakhna. Literally translated, it means the string that holds the pearls together. That is what my mother was. She was the string that held our family together. Since her death [by a U.S. drone strike], the string has been broken and life has not been the same. We feel alone and we feel lost.”

Pakistani family of drone strike victim gives harrowing testimony to Congress. Only 5 Congress members showed up.

Just wondering how Americans would feel if this happened to their mothers.
