Omni Dallas Hotel Lit Up With Pakistani Flag

Yesterday, when I learned of the Easter suicide bombing in Lahore, Pakistan killing 70 Christians celebrating Easter in a park, well, it crossed my mind to wonder why the international reaction is not the same as it was with the Paris Massacre and the Brussels bombing.

By international reaction I mean various cities displaying their symbolic solidarity with displays of the flag of the victim country, usually via lighting on famous buildings.

Or, in the case of Seattle, after the Paris Massacre a giant French flag was hoisted atop the Space Needle.

Well, this morning I was pleasantly surprised to learn that Dallas has world wide social media buzzing due to the Omni Dallas Hotel using its lighting to display the Pakistani flag.
