Interrupting regularly-scheduled content for a moment of silence for Deah, Yusor, and Razan, 3 young Muslims from North Carolina, USA who were shot to death, assassination-style, in front of their own homes by a white domestic terrorist. The media is of course, when they finally did decide to report on this tragedy (if it was in reverse it would have been front-page of all media outlets within hours), ignoring the hate and xenophobia that fueled this killing.

I will stop here, as my thoughts are now a bit too raw and unpolished. My thoughts, prayers, and solidarity are with the victims and their families. I've shared a bit more on my Twitter: @hodakatebi.

If you are in the Chicago area, we have organized a candlelight vigil tonight at UChicago at 6:00pm. The event can be found here.

Deah, Yusor, and Razan, you will live on in all of our hearts.
