This story is from Keith Stringfellow, who teaches American History, World History, and English at the Charlotte Islamic Academy. The story he shares to Muslim StoryTellers is his journey to embracing Islam; it is a journey unlike any other.
On February 10, 2015, the Muslim community lost 3 great gems, Deah Barakat and Yusor and Razan Abu-Salha; it has been now one year since Our Three Winners have passed. They were three inspiring, charismatic, and altruistic individuals who lived for something beyond themselves. Through their drive to help those in need, they volunteered regularly for several organizations. Nasir Khatri (to the right of the picture), a close friend of Deah Barakat, shares his story about the type of person and wonderful friend Deah was.
