Chapel Hill Shooting
There's no white person exception for terrorism.
“In a time when someone like Trump could become our president, it is important to share with people the deadly cost of hate.”
Vanderbilt University is no stranger to individuals who make irresponsible statements about Islam. Last year, Carol Swain, a Vanderbilt professor, stated that, "Islam has a problem with the West. Islam will never understand the freedoms that we live and die to preserve."
On this tragic day, the heavens screamed as three angels were killed. But on this very same day, a legacy was born. Here are 10 things we can learn from Deah Barakat, Yusor Abu-Salha, and Razan Abu-Salha, in the words of their closest friends.
Before his death, the Chapel Hill shooting victim tweeted about his dream for his community. His loved ones aren't going to let that dream fade away.
