200 Killed in Egypt Mosque Attack, State Media Says
State media said 120 people were also wounded in the attack
Our hearts break for those killed or injured and their families in Sinai, Egypt.
A reminder: it’s okay to take a break from social media and wait for news agencies to gather the full story. It’s easy to accidentally consume or share false breaking news stories, especially when tragedy happens.
Tragedies can sometimes be used to promote Islamophobia and other forms of hate. Don’t let friends, family, or media you follow use their fear and misunderstanding to spread hate. Speak and act with the greatest weapon we have: love.
And if you’re feeling helpless, choose to help anyway. Volunteering, donating blood, donating to victim relief funds, or talking with a friend in need all make a difference no matter where you live. ❤️
