A personal plea in memory of Kayla Mueller

I urge you to please donate to Kayla’s Hands, the organization established by Kayla Mueller’s family to fulfill her dreams, cut short when she was kidnapped and killed by ISIS. Kayla was a wonderful young woman whose story touched me so deeply. I want to do everything possible to make sure her life’s purpose is continued. Evil cannot end the beauty of this young woman.

Recently, several young Yazidi women who were also kidnapped, raped repeatedly, and brutalized by ISIS have informed the world of Kayla’s courage while they endured the worst one can suffer together. They said she tried not to cry or be weak in their presence, so as to give them courage. Recently, the news has come out that Kayla did not die in a bomb attack as previously reported – but at the brutal hands of her captors and rapists. Those Yazidi women who survived are telling her story now.

See www.kaylashands.org and in particular watch this video of Kayla so you’ll get to know her.

Kayla gives me courage. I hope all of you will help carry out her work by donating to the organization her family has established in her memory. Please donate generously now. We all look for places to “make a difference” – this is where you can. And, again, watch the video.
