Nailah Franklin: Rest in Peace

Today CNN is reporting that the body of Nailah Franklin has been found.

 

I didn’t know her. I have no idea of the circumstances under which she lost her life, but all around the web, there have been testaments to her beauty, her goodness, and her vitality from the people who knew her best.

 

There is no honor in having your life cut too short, but there is honor in living the kind of life that causes others great personal sadness when you’re gone, and Nailah clearly led that kind of life. It is a shame that we will never get to know who she was, and will probably never get to know much about why she was taken so soon. The prayers of all the women of Black Women for Obama are with her family.
