From Rizky Rahadianto ’15:
On Wednesday, 3 young Muslims, Deah Shaddy Barakat, his wife, Yusor Mohammad Abu-Salha, and her sister, Razan Mohammad Abu-Salha, were brutally murdered by a middle-aged white man.
Not only has mainstream media failed to cover the story, they have refrained from using the words “terrorism”, “hate crime”, “racism” or any other phrase that would describe this heinous incident for what it truly is.
Please join the Muslim/Arab/Middle-Eastern community as we grieve for this tragic loss. We will be holding a vigil on Sunday (2/15) in the Exley lobby at 8PM. If you would like to share your words, through a poem, short speech etc., you will be more than welcome to. Please email hfahmy[at]wesleyan[dot]edu if you’re planning to do it.
Date: Sunday, Feb 15
Time: 8 PM
Place: Exley Lobby
