Offer a prayer or thought of solidarity for the Muslim American community to show that we reject the actions of this shooter and stand with them.

Why is this important?

Early Wednesday morning, students Deah Barakat, aged 23, his wife Yusor Mohammad Abu-Salha, 21, and her sister Razan, 19, were gunned down in their Chapel Hill home by a neighbor. The Muslim community is upset at the tragic loss of innocent life, scared for their children and feeling alone.

While the motive for the shooting is still unclear, it is important that we move quickly to show our Muslim-American neighbors and colleagues that we care for them and are equally horrified by this shooting.

As people of diverse faith and moral traditions, let our Muslim American friends know that we stand firm with them in this difficult time and reject the hateful actions of this shooter.

  • Condenamos lo que tambiĆ©n hacemos. En todas partes hay buenos y malos.
  • Being from North Carolina, I am saddened that something like this could happen in my home state. As a high school history/social studies teacher, I always try to teach my students the importance of tolerating and accepting people that may be different from them. Teaching about diversity is one of the most important things to me as a teacher. My thoughts and prayers go out to the families and friends of these innocent individuals.
  • I like my Muslim friends and neighbors!
