Treat all with respect


Originally published in The Houston Chronicle 

Regarding “Vigil honors 3 Muslim students shot to death in N. Carolina” (Page B1, Monday), what kind of resentment can cause someone to shoot 3 college students in the head as happened in the recent Chapel Hill shootings? Some say it was over a “parking dispute,” but the answer may lie in the growing Islamophobia in the country.

As we try to understand the reasons behind this senseless slaughter, we should remember to treat everyone by their deeds, and call an “act of terrorism” an act of terrorism – irrespective of the religious affiliations of the perpetrator.

The loss of one child is too much pain to bear. The loss of three young, vibrant people with their lives ahead of them is a pain I cannot imagine.
