Kenyans hold vigil to mourn Garissa victims

Kenyans Are Using the #147NotJustaNumber Hashtag to Honor Those Killed at Garissa

Kenyans have launched a social media campaign to remember those who died at last week’s massacre at Garissa University College in eastern Kenya, where terrorist al-Shabaab gunmen killed 148 people, most of them students aged between 19 and 23.

Using the hashtag #147notjustanumber, people are posting pictures of loved ones to Twitter and often sharing biographical details to give faces to the people behind the grim, anonymous death toll.

    Kenyans are Copying Westerners for being cowards and using computers after this jihad massacre. They should have learned from the CAR people and fight back hard against their own Islamic jihadists.
