Michelle Kapolis

Age 13

I heard about Iqbal's death from my grandmother. She knew about Iqbal and who he was, and she knew that I knew about Iqbal also. She told me he was murdered on Easter Sunday. I felt terrible. I didn't think that it was true, and I didn't, or I tried not to believe it. I asked my grandmother "Are you sure," she said yes and showed me the article in the newspaper. It was true!?

I felt terrible hat such a young boy died, before he had a chance to have a life, or fulfill his own dream. I hope that we can help fulfill his dream of abolishing child labor, especially in Pakistan, and help build a school in Pakistan for him.
