Pakistan was shocked at the news that a 17 year old foreign exchange student from Karachi was killed in the Santa Fe High School shooting on May 18. Here is Sophia Saifi’s report for CNN on how her death has devastated her family.
While her father has been able to talk to the press, her mother is too upset and shocked to meet anyone. She met with Sophia, and spoke to her on the condition that she would not be photographed. Sophia told her that the American actress Mindy Kaling had tweeted about her.
The excitement on her face is heart crushing. This little girl could’ve been my daughter. We must do more than just console the parents of these murdered kids. @Everytown #EnoughIsEnough https://t.co/8cjpPh4v1v

Mrs. Sheikh responded that the only thing keeping her going was people across the world saying her child’s name.
Share this post, share the CNN story, and share Sabika Sheikh’s name so that the whole world knows who we lost.
