Maha, it is a shame that some people are being silent. The open voice for excluding others has become too loud and widespread here in North America and needs to be rejected. First though I think our beloved Muslim friends need to know they won’t be left to deal with this cruel mess on their own.

As a side note, I’m having trouble communicating with my American friends. Every shock from the new president makes me want to categorize the whole country as a lost cause and walk smugly away. I need to imagine ways to be supportive and not leave them alone to the disaster they didn’t make. Any ideas?
