Kansas shooting victim's wife asks the question in every immigrant's mind

A poignant article from CNN.


On the dreadful night of Wednesday February 22nd 2017, I lost my husband ó my soul mate ó my friend and my confidante. He was a source of inspiration, a support system not just to me but to any and all he got to know. He always had a smile for every one, respected all especially his elders. His passion was to constantly innovate in the the aviation industry. Here in America, he commenced is his career at Rockwell Collins, and he worked On Flight Control System especially on Primary Flight Control Computer that would change the way flights work with improved performances. He dedicated his life to this development. There were days he used to come home to have only dinner and leave for work again - only return around 2 or 3 in the morning. He was very happy at Rockwell and liked living in a small town like Cedar Rapids, Iowa. But we decided to move from there to a bigger city so that I could get a job and be able to pursue my dreams, as he was able to do for himself. Kansas was our instant choice, and we moved here with a lot of dreams. We built our dream home, which he painted, and installed the garage door. Doing any kind of work on his home gave him immense joy. This was the home that he had built to Ė for us and any kids we would have- was our first step to starting our family. Itís so unfortunate that this dream of ours is now shattered. All of this, because of one person, who did not think of the impact his deed would have on the victimís family.

I will now ask same question ó On what basis we decide a person is good or bad, and of course, itís not based on the color of your skin. So what decides that? Many times, these issues are talked about for a few weeks and people tend to forget about them afterward, but the fight must go on towards eradicating hatred from the minds of people. So what is the government going to do to stop hate crime? Lastly, to answer the question that is in every immigrantís mind, DO WE BELONG HERE? Is this the same country we dreamed of and is it still secure to raise our families and children here?

Our hearts go out to Sunayana, and ourselves, because this new wave of hatred that has engulfed us from Trump and his inbred, quasi-literate supporters who want to 'make Amurika grate' again is shameful, odious and immoral. It boggles the mind how so many people could vote this man and his neo-nazi, white supremacist assholes into office. THIS IS NOT THE AMERICA I WANT.

In terms of sheer value as a human being, Dumala's murdered husband leaves the cracker who shot him in the dust. This is the problem with these ignorant assholes. Here's a guy who was producing great things, an aviation engineer, an educated man who wanted to build a life here, but due to some white nationalist piece of illiterate shit who probably doesn't even work, his dream was destroyed.
