Today Zahara Baker would have been 18 years old. I never met the little girl that we all got to know years ago. She was murdered because of the cruelty that exists in the world. I followed the story on a daily basis for nearly two years as most did. Each day we learned more about her struggle and it made us all sad and angry. Her story, nor her face will ever be forgotten. Rest in Peace Zahara
