Sad story

While watching Democracy Now! this morning, I heard the tragic story of Sakia Gunn, a 15-year-old Lesbian, African-American woman brutally murdered in a hate crime in Newark, NJ on May 11, 2003. Her murder was largly ignorned by her school, the city of Newark and the mainstream press. Later today you can find a link to the web stream or transcript at Democracy Now! (it is too soon for it to be up as I post this). One of the people on the Democracy Now segment this morning writes for the Gay City News, and here is one of their stories on the murder.
May justice be found and may all who loved her find her memory to be a blessing.
