Scott McLeod, the fire chief in Pelham, Canada, who mobilized the effort to help us in our efforts to get honor killing victim Aqsa Parvez a decent memorial after the family left her to lie in an umarked grave, has emailed me with wonderful news.
Scott and city of Pelham have honored Atlas readers who contributed to Aqsa Parvez's memorial. The city of Pelham has included a list of all the Atlas readers, to be installed at the foot of Aqsa's memorial. Scott McLeod created a dedication prefaced with the following. The footing will be poured next Tuesday.
The following, is a list of people from around the world who came together to ensure that this child would not be forgotten.
While we have attempted to gather all who supported this endeavor, however it is likely that some are not noted in the following. We believe that those unknown hero’s prayers and support are in this document, as though printed.
We have gathered as a family, who cross religious, ethnic and geographic boundaries to create this memorial which represent, what we as a global community believe is the ethical and honorable thing to do.
We have included the prayers, comments and statement of values which we as citizens of the world hold dear.
Rest in Peace Aqsa, you will be remembered
Imagine that. An Aqsa Peace Park in Canada and an Aqsa Parvez grove of trees in Jerusalem.
Thank you to the wonderful, good souls (infidels!) who contributed to the Aqsa Parvez Headstone Memorial Fund. (Much thanks to Robert Spencer who assisted me in this effort.)
G-d bless each and everyone of you.
