STYLE 1. Sikh is pronounced "pick" but replace the "p" with an "s." According to the Sikh Coalition, when European colonialists entered S. Asia, they elongated the "i" to sound like "seek." While both pronunciations are used in modern English, the original Punjabi is preferable.

May the victims be laid to rest. May the survivors be healed. May the mourners be comforted. May we recognize that democracy can save us from gun violence. #FedExShootings

A gunman slaughtered 8 working class people at a FedEx in Indianapolis. FedEx workers surrender their phones during their shifts. 1. The victims never called their loved ones. 2. We can be asked to give up our phones but *not* our guns. 3. We limit freedoms for workers not gunmen

Indeed so handsome that his handsomeness had to be emplotted in Crash Landing On You. What a happy break from recent dark topics it was to chat with the @LoudMurmurs podcast goddesses about Hyun Bin and other worthy matters 💙 https://t.co/km1QaE3abm
