Goodbye, Abdul Sattar Edhi.

Goodbye, Abdul Sattar Edhi. You were a simple man, a gift to the poor, the hungry, the disposse13606764_10208473712813347_331618934240130614_nssed, the neglected. The abandoned infants, the injured unable to pay for an ambulance, the dead without anyone to bury them, – all found refuge and help with your network of charitable work. Your organization asked nothing in return. You relied only on donations. You lived a meager life in material terms, but your impact is astounding. You never asked if the one in need was Muslim, Christian, Hindu, Sikh, or anything else. Never cared if she was sinner or saint. Pakistan still desperately needs your work to continue, and I feel like our nation has become orphaned. May you rest in peace and power.
