On another day of terrible news, this time from Christchurch, New Zealand, I send deep love to Muslim friends, neighbours, publishing colleagues, and the worldwide Muslim community. "Thoughts and prayers" are not enough, of course. I stand beside you, working for change.
"I am so tired of waiting, aren’t you, for the world to become good and beautiful and kind?" - Langston Hughes
