The reason the family has not said anything about Rasheed is that we're hurting. I'm Faheem's cousin and I had just attended Rasheed's graduation from NC State and his commissioning ceremony as an officer into the US Army. None of us understand what really happened to Rasheed and why he took his brother's life. I'm in Utah and I move back to NC in a few weeks, so I'm not there with the family, I have only spoken with my mother and don't know how his sisters are handling it. I only know that it seemed that Rasheed was gonna bring hope and honor to our family, being young, black and on his way up. Faheem was always good to me, however distant I was. My mother would tell him I needed something and he would discreetly support me. I don't what will become of Rasheed, but I pray our family can love him even though we hate what he's done. Faheem didn't deserve to die like he did and I love him, miss him and regret that when I heard he was in town, I didn't try to see him. I thought I'd have more time. Don't expect the family to say much about Rasheed for a while.. Right now, there are no words..
