The book – titled “NeverAgain” in a reference to their movement – will be released on June 5. David, who is 18, and younger sister Lauren, along with some of their classmates, launched the NeverAgain movement, which saw hundreds of thousands of people take to the streets of US cities on March 24 for the “March for Our Lives.” “Lauren and I will be using the money made from the book to help heal the community,” David said on his Twitter feed.

Hogg has been attacked and harassed online, and even accused of being a “crisis actor” paid to travel to tragedies to propagate liberal viewpoints.
Baloch activist Mustikhan says India was supporting terrorism in Pakistan!
WASHINGTON: American Friends of Balochistan (AFB) group’s founder & Baloch activist Mustikhan has said yesterday (17th of April) that he had heckled deposed prime minister Nawaz Sharif during his 2015 visit here at KGB behest.
Emboldened by the decision of a district court in Maryland that refused to silence him, Mustikhan (who happens to be a journalist too) posted three pieces on Facebook yesterday (17th of April).
In these statements, he claimed that he was “let down” by RAW operatives working from the Indian Embassy in Washington. He identified one of them as Nagesh Bhushan who (according to him) manned RAW’s Balochistan Desk.
It is pertinent to mention here that two Indian supporters of AFB had filed an appeal asking the judge to stop Mustikhan from sharing group’s in-house secrets. However, the court held that US constitution guaranteed Mustikhan freedom of expression.
On Oct 22, 2015, Mustikhan, had heckled Nawaz Sharif on (22nd of October, 2015) during his speech at the US Institute for Peace here and was removed by security personnel as he continued shouting for several minutes.
Baloch activist Mustikhan also heckled other Pakistani leaders including former president Pervez Musharraf. Saying that he had no fight with Sharif (as he is an elected prime minister) and he did that with a heavy heart. However, he added that he had heckled others willingly.
Mustikhan maintained in his statements that India was supporting terrorism in Pakistan that started after the Kargil war and that’s why the current insurgency had continued for 12 years. According to him RAW encouraged militants to kill Punjabi, Pakhtun and even Sindhi civilians.

PHILADELPHIA: Engine failure on a Southwest Airlines passenger killed and forced an emergency landing yesterday (17th of April), the first fatal incident in US commercial aviation for nearly a decade.
The Boeing 737-700 took off without incident but minutes into the flight, passengers heard an explosion in the left engine, which sent shrapnel flying through the window, shattering the glass and leading oxygen masks to drop, witnesses said.
“We believe there were parts coming out of this engine,” Robert Sumwalt, chairman of the National Transportation Safety Board, told a news conference, confirming engine failure but no fire. “There is one fatality,” Sumwalt said.
The person killed was later revealed to be Jennifer Riordan, a 43-year-old bank executive and mother-of-two from Albuquerque, New Mexico, according to officials from her hometown and state as well as local media. US media reported seven people were slightly injured.
“We are saying this is an engine failure,” Sumwalt said. Southwest Airlines said flight 1380 had been en route from New York’s LaGuardia domestic airport to Dallas Love Field with 144 passengers and five crew members onboard.
It landed at Philadelphia International Airport at 11:20 am (1520 GMT) after the crew reported damage to one of the engines, the fuselage and at least one window, the Federal Aviation Administration said.
