Lahore violence against Sri Lankan cricketers

What a cruel blow to Pakistan and cricket fans everywhere. Just a couple of hours ago I left a speaker event on Pakistan with optimism for its future. My Pakistani classmate Osman Khan emailed me, the first I knew of it, saying "I am sorry about what happened in Lahore today. It is sad that my country has come to a point when friends of Pakistan are being attacked. When no one was ready to tour the country, the Sri Lankans came-and this is what happened."

A dark day for all concerned.

How are you?
My name is Yuma Ariie.
Nice to meet you, and this is the first time to send an e-mail to you.

I am a Japanese applicant for business school,
and I am strongly interested in Stanford university.
I will go to the USA for campus visit at UCB and Stanford university from 1th May.
If it`s possible, could you please have a chance to meet at the university on 1th or 2th or 3th May?

The mid-term exam seems to come soon, so only an hour is enough.

I hope to get the reply to this e-mail address:
great-pyramid1231@ezweb.ne.jp

Thank you for reading.
Best regards,
Yuma Ariie
