The campus community is invited to attend a vigil to remember the victims of Saturday's Squirrel Hill shooting. Source: @UMiamiHillel (Facebook)

A community comes together
 
"We all have heard about many terrible acts of violence and hatred, some ancient and some modern. However, when one reads about these things, that person is lulled into thinking that that same violence and hate won’t come to them, their family, their friends, or people they know.

I had that belief ripped away from me this weekend."

Assistant online editor Zachary Zytnick calls Pittsburgh "home." In the aftermath of Saturday's shooting at the Tree of Life Synagogue, in which 11 people were killed, he responds to the attack in a column and emphasizes - in light of tragedy - the meaning of being #PittsburghProud.

The campus community is responding, too.

University of Miami Hillel and UChabad will be hosting a vigil tonight, 9 p.m. on The Rock, and invite the community to come together, remember the victims and show that we are #StrongerThanHate.

What happened? 28-year-old homeless man Robert Wayne Gore has confessed to the murder of University of Miami architecture student Yasser Talal Ibrahim Abualfaraj. While we still don't know the specifics of what happened, an email from UM Communications encourages students to "to remain vigilant and to take advantage of the numerous safeguards in place to keep informed and aware," including safety escorts, Safe Ride and the UGuardian app. Information on these services and more can be found here.

Be kind to you, too. As Edge Editor Jordan Lewis writes, treating yourself with care "is a process, but it is one that is absolutely essential in maintaining a physically and mentally healthy lifestyle." In light of recent tragedies and general semester stress, we could all use this advice. Take a look at her 15 ways to be kind to yourself.
