This year has been rough. If we talk about the U.S., many tragic incidents have taken place that involved public shootings where many innocents lost their lives. Not just that, but this has happened in the schools as well where hundreds of kids died on the spot. The U.S government was asked to take abrupt actions and look into the matter very seriously!
So, a similar tragic incident took place yet again. In Santa Fe, Texas, another school was targeted and 10 precious lives were lost including a Pakistani exchange student, Sabika Seikh. Sabika went to the U.S through YES program and was living in Texas. She was to return home next month for Eid. Last night, the news spread of her death and the authorizes informed the parents and family through email.
Here’s the official statement
Today morning, an official statement was given out by the American Ambassador, David Hale in which he has offered his condolence to Sabika’s family over the great loss!
“This morning, I called the family of Sabika Sheikh and offered my deepest condolences. As an exchange student, Sabika was a youth ambassador, a bridge between our peoples and cultures.
