Kids are the future of the country and when we lose some one like Arfa Karim, it is loss of the nation. RIP Arfa, we are proud of you and the nation should not forget you as you have made the nation of Pakistan so proud. Yes, Pakistanis are intelligent and hard working people if given the chance and opportunity. She was so much for education, a school should be named after her and let the kids learn about her and share her dream.
