    Islamabad, Pakistan (CNN)On Easter Sunday, a crisp spring day, some of the city's Christian population mingled with their Muslim neighbors, celebrating in a neighborhood park -- taking their kids on rides or pushing them on swings. Then, the sound of tragedy.
    Without warning, a blast tore through the park, killing indiscriminately.
    Because of the innocent setting, an unusually high number of those injured were women and children. But the attack, claimed by a splinter group of the Pakistani Taliban, intentionally targeted Christians, the perpetrators say.
    The suicide blast, in the eastern Pakistan city of Lahore, killed at least 69 people, a local government spokesman told CNN.
    More than 341 others were injured, according to Punjab government spokesperson Jehangir Awan.

    It comes at a difficult time for Pakistan's Christians, some of whom were in the city's Gulshan Iqbal Park to celebrate the holiday Sunday evening, only to see their Easter Sunday fragment into terror and chaos.
    The religious group makes up only 2% of the population, and tensions are high between them and a hardline Muslim core which wants to see a strict interpretation of Islamic law take precedence in Pakistan's legal system.

    Greetings beloved.

    I am praying for peace, unconditional love, faith and hope.

    I do not want people fighting anymore anywhere on this planet.

    There is enough for everyone. We need to share.

    I want weapons put down everywhere because of love for our Creator.

    We all need to respect our differing beliefs and after a while we might all get to the point of laughing saying we used to think that? Hahaha.

    Thank you.

    Mary Magdalene
