Going to Carolina in My Mind

I, like most of the world, am trying to wrap my head around Tuesday’s horrific shooting of three students in Chapel Hill, NC. I just can’t fathom how someone can have so much anger and hatred to the point they take the lives of fellow humans.

Having friends who attend both UNC Chapel Hill and NC State University, and friends who are Muslim, I have seen the impacts this scary situation has had on them.

Today, I’m “going to Carolina in my mind” and praying for the students’ families, friends, and for peace to come.
