There is still hope

I love my daughter's style of writing. Although she doesn't often publicly share what she writes, some of her pieces will really strike a chord. This is one such piece, about growing up Muslim in America. It's simple and brief, but heartfelt, and certainly worth a read.

There is too much hate in the world, there is too much prejudice and discrimination, based on religion, gender and sexual orientation, and skin color. We all know someone personally, who has experienced profiling, and often times it is us who are the ones being profiled.

It is, however the younger generation that gives us much hope. I hope and pray that their voices are never silenced. Because honestly, without hope for the future, what do we have?
