Chapel Hill shooter motivated more than parking rage

But we all knew that already.

New York Times

On the last day of Razan Mohammad Abu-Salha’s life, it was too cold to run.

Ms. Abu-Salha, a 19-year-old North Carolina State University sophomore, was training with a friend for a half-marathon in Raleigh. But when her design class let out after noon that Tuesday, Feb. 10, the wind chill was 30 degrees — painful for a North Carolinian. Instead, she hopped into her red Toyota Corolla and set off on the 25-mile drive to the Chapel Hill condominium where her newlywed sister, Yusor Mohammad Abu-Salha, had recently moved in with her husband, Deah Shaddy Barakat.

  1. Thank you for continuing to talk about this terrible act that took place at UNC! I’m from Tennessee, but have traveled and lived in the MENA region, and hope that violence such as this will not deter Christians and other religious people from reaching out with tolerance to Muslims. I did a short blog post on that earlier today:

    Best wishes to you and I hope you stop by COAG soon 🙂
