 JOHN LEWIS … CIVIL RIGHTS ICON

We have a mission, a mandate, and a moral obligation to speak up and speak out until the House votes to address gun violence.

We have turned deaf ears to the blood of the innocent and the concern of our nation. We will use nonviolence to fight gun violence and inaction.

Senator John Lewis

Democratic representative John Lewis called his colleagues to join him as he spoke on the House floor Wednesday< June 22, afternoon.

A few dozen traveled down the aisles and fanned out on either side of Lewis’s podium as he began:

“What would bring this body to take action? What would finally make Congress do what is right, what is just, what the people of this country have been demanding, and what is long overdue? We have lost hundreds of thousands of innocent people to gun violence.”

Lewis, who fought on the front lines of the civil-rights movement, delivered an impassioned speech about the need for action — for House Speaker Paul Ryan to simply allow a vote — on gun-control measures.

HATE CRIMES, MASS SHOOTINGS AND HATE SPEECH

February 10th, 2016

Day of Light: On the Path to Resilience

It’s been a bit over one year since this terrible tragedy occurred.

Do we remember?

I wasn’t even aware that this had happened.

I came across the last video included in this post this morning.

I started researching and looking for more.

Hate speech, banning Muslims, creating a data base for people of specific religions, building walls … all have consequences.

Words are powerful.

Never forget that!

The Story of a Hate Crime

On February 10, 2015, Deah Shaddy Barakat, Yusor Mohammad Abu-Salha, and Razan Mohammad Abu-Salha were killed in their home in Finley Forest Condominiums on Summerwalk Circle in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, United States.

Barakat was a second-year student in the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Dentistry, his wife Yusor was a North Carolina State University (NCSU) graduate planning to enter UNC Dentistry School in the fall, and her sister Razan was a student at NCSU majoring in architecture and environmental design.

Chapel Hill police arrested their neighbor, Craig Stephen Hicks, who had shot and killed the three people in a single attack.

On February 10, the Chapel Hill Police Department stated that their “preliminary investigation indicates that the crime was motivated by an ongoing neighbor dispute over parking. Hicks is cooperating with investigators.”

Hicks was charged with three counts of first-degree murder. On February 16, Hicks was indicted by a Durham County grand jury on three counts of first-degree murder and one count of discharging a firearm into an occupied dwelling.

Three people (two of whom were students) were killed

Deah Shaddy Barakat

Age 23, a Syrian American. A 2013 graduate of North Carolina State University who had majored in business administration, he was a second-year student in the UNC School of Dentistry. He and 10 other dental students were planning to travel to Turkey to treat Syrian refugees as part of a project organized by UNC-Chapel Hill School of Dentistry and the Syrian-American Medical Society. He also worked to provide free dental supplies to the homeless in his spare time. An avid fan of basketball, he married Yusor Mohammad Abu-Salha on December 27, 2014. The couple had been married just six weeks when they were killed. An autopsy clarified that Barakat was shot multiple times in the head, chest, and upper extremities.

Yusor Mohammad Abu-Salha

Age 21, a Jordanian American of Palestinian descent and the wife of Deah Shaddy Barakat. Born in Jordan, she emigrated to the United States at the age of six months. A 2014 graduate of North Carolina State University, she had graduated with a bachelor’s degree in biological sciences, and was planning to enter UNC in the fall to study dentistry. Friends described her as “down to earth” and “understanding”, a happy newlywed eager to impress and please her husband. According to an autopsy, she was shot in the head and hip.

Razan Mohammad Abu-Salha

Age 19, a Jordanian American of Palestinian descent and a sister of Yusor Mohammad Abu-Salha. Born in the United States, she was a sophomore in the North Carolina State University College of Design, majoring in architecture and environmental design. She was also dedicated to charity work, supporting charities like Global Deaf Muslim. An autopsy described her cause of death as a gunshot wound to the left side of the head.

~Published on Aug 19, 2015~~

23-year-old Deah Barakat hoped to fundraise $20,000 for a summer trip to Turkey to provide dental care to Syrian refugees. After he, his wife Yusor and her sister Razan Abu-Salha were shot to death in North Carolina in February, donations in their memory reached over $533,000. His father, brother and dozens of volunteers delivered the funds – and smiles – on a recent trip to Turkey.
