Remembering the 14 Women Shot at École Polytechnique in Montreal

Today is a day of remembrance for 14 women who lost their lives in Canada’s worst school shooting 24 years ago on Dec 6, 1989. It is a day when the young engineering women students were separated from their colleagues and shot because of their gender. Many of their young engineering male colleagues who were ordered out of the classroom by the gunman had to endure the guilt of having lived. One of the young men sadly committed suicide because of his guilt and his parents subsequently committed suicide as they could not live without him according to CBC. Many others have dedicated their lives since that sad day to ending violence against women. We salute you and we do not forget and we will continue to work hard to make our world and schools a safer place. ….Sue Abu-Hakima, CEO Amika Mobile.
