After the Taliban attacked a military school in Peshawar, Pakistan last week, Abida Farooqui and her friends looked for a vigil to attend in St. Louis. When they didn’t find one, they organized one.
About 150 people turned up at Shaw Park in Clayton Sunday afternoon for the vigil, where they lined up on the sidewalk along S. Brentwood Blvd. to display their homemade signs. “St. Louis Mourns Peshawar,” read one. “Wake Up Pakistan,” said another. A third said simply “Enough.”
