Being at a loss for words is never ideal for a journalist, yet the mind-numbing massacre of 132 schoolchildren in Peshawar has left me struggling... The 132 children of the Army Public School in Peshawar who died in last Tuesday's attack were its latest victims. They will not be the last.

Whilst there is absolutely no justification for the killing of women and children in Islam, Muslim leaders have made the all-too-common mistake of apologising and condemning a crime which was not carried out in the name of religion. Rather, the unfortunate event that occurred was as a result of an ongoing cycle of violence that began in 2001.

Despite growing up in notoriously crime-ridden countries in Africa, I always felt safe at school. With time, it didn't make much difference that the school bus I rode to school in Johannesburg was bulletproof. I grew used to the barbed wire that surrounded the boundaries of my school in Tanzania.

The massacre of 142 people of which 132 were Pakistani children is absolutely inhumane. Many more are critically injured and we can expect to see the death toll rise. The devastation caused by the Taliban in Peshawar to the families of the victims is unimaginable.

Monday it was Sydney; yesterday it was Peshawar, and tomorrow, is could be anyone or anywhere else. Pessimism doesn't do anyone any favours when it comes to perception of the future, but in this case, I feel as if it's not entirely pessimistic as it's the truth, it's unfortunately the world we now live in. Is there anywhere that's actually safe from the relentless grip of terror?

If different decisions had been made in Pakistan's history, this may have been possible but for now the future of good education in Pakistan remains bleak, if the leaders of this country invested more in the their education sector then perhaps the Taliban wouldn't have been able to recruit so many young men into their initiative.
