"I remember mom always telling me that all in all in the end the only one you really have is God. I have come to a place in experience where, in every sense of the word, I have surrendered myself to our creator b/c literally there was no else…. + by God + by your prayers I have felt tenderly cradled in freefall."
-- Kayla Mueller

News of Kayla Mueller's death was reported today. So sad to see this young woman killed by religious zealots. So many on facebook and elsewhere today praised this woman as a saint and a hero. The question no one else seems to be asking is: What in the world was she doing in Syria to begin with?

My passive investigation reveals ISIS kidnapped Kayla at a bus stop in Aleppo, Syria. She was there by herself. She apparently thought her god was looking out for her. If she did, it appears she was incorrect.

It is too much to observe the similarities between Kayla and ISIS? Deluded religious zealots, the lot of them.
