Sandy Hook ShootingOn Sunday I saw some pictures of the Sandy Hook Elementary victims. The thought of the killer shooting at these little angels multiple times brings me devastating grief. I cannot imagine what must have been their last thought. No religion promotes such barbaric acts. I am glad that the killer’s religion—if he even had one—is not being blamed for his senseless actions.

As an American Muslim I mourn today, with my fellow citizens, at the loss of these innocent souls. I am a believer of the Quranic teaching which says that to take one innocent life is to kill all mankind. My prayers are with the victims’ families. To protect our little ones in the future, we must now unite, and condemn this atrocity.
