TO OUR DYING COMMUNTY MEMBERS - WE SPEAK YOUR NAMES.
We unfortunately have a tragic announcement to make: on Monday October 26, 2020 we lost one of our beloved community members. Our prayers and blessings go out to their loved ones and our collective grieving community.
We speak your name! May the creator guide you. Ashe/Amen
To our Somali Muslim sisters, brothers and allies, Allah ha ni naxariisto. Insha'Allah Allah (S.W.T) grant you Jannah Fardows. Ameen Ya Rabbi.
To our beloved sister and elder, you bought laughter where there were none. You bought kindness, where it was unexpected. You will forever be loved and remembered. May the Creator Guide You. Ashe/Amen.
We are grieving an unimaginable loss as a community. We have lost and continue to lose many members of our communities. The multiple pandemics of opioid, Covid-19, myriad of curable and incurable diseases, gun violence.. and the ever present systemic violence have cost and continue to take the lives of many community members old and young! Our candle vigil will burn bright on our website for as long as we continue to lose loved ones.
May the Creator guide you all. Ashe/Amen.
