25 Sep Our hearts go out to the victims in Burlington

Assalamu Alaykum / Peace be upon you,

Our hearts go out to the victims of the shooting at the Cascade Mall in Burlington. This time violence struck home. On behalf of all of our community, I would like to express our sincere condolences to the families of the victims and our sincere gratitude to the law enforcement officers who apprehended the suspect.

A few hours ago, Governor Jay Inslee said, “our entire state is united tonight.” Indeed, we are all united in light of this tragedy. I ask our community to join hands with our neighbors and friends in eradicating hate, to attend vigils remembering the victims and to take a strong stance against gun violence.
