This is the time to show strength, to overcome fear with truth. As American Muslims, we defend American values, are integral to our society, and serve as a reminder to the public that shared values bring us together as Americans. This is the time to demonstrate our strength as Americans and our conviction for Islam in America for the future. It's time to be counted. It's time to build bridges and break barriers.
