Let's look beyond who America is

America is our home. And it is our responsibility to fix it if it’s broken.

July 3, 2018


The Declaration of Independence was written at a time when African Americans were enslaved, women had no rights, and the United States was far from being equal. Despite that, the principles of freedom and equality-- “that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness” -- still stand and it’s these principles that make this nation worth fighting for. It’s these principles that we need to pledge to adhere to this Fourth of July.

The bigotry faced by American Muslims these past few years is nothing new to many communities. Others have been facing similar struggles for generations; we are millions strong in our struggle. We will walk and fight together through these challenges and we will also come up with solutions together. I know you are tired, we are too. But America is our home. And it is our responsibility to fix it if it’s broken.

So as we prepare for bbq and fireworks this July 4th, let’s look forward to what we want for the future of this nation. Not who America is, but who America should be.
