Here is a great post from Jon Kuhrt’s Resistance and Renewal blog and really shows all about “doing life” in the face of death.
The family of Kayla Mueller, a US aid worker who was being held by ISIS, have confirmed that she has been killed.
Before she was captured, she told her hometown paper in Prescott, Arizona:
“It’s important to stop and realize what we have, why we have it and how privileged we are. And from that place, start caring and get a lot done.”
Kayla’s family have released a letter sent to them by her from captivity written in the spring of 2014:
Everyone, If you are receiving this letter it means I am still detained but my cell mates (starting from 11/2/2014) have been released.
I have asked them to contact you + send you this letter. It’s hard to know what to say. Please know that I am in a safe location, completely unharmed + healthy (put on weight in fact); I have been treated w/ the utmost respect + kindness.
I wanted to write you all…
