Dear Editor, While I was confident that Hillary Clinton would win the 2016 Presidential Election, I started this Wednesday morning in fear like many others. However, being a Muslim, my faith is my means of attaining positive thinking. It teaches me that “Love for your country is part of Islam” and America is my home. This is not a mere teaching but a duty I have to put into practice to really ascertain my love and loyalty to this nation. Even though practicing one’s right to vote shows one’s commitment and loyalty to his or her country but I believe that by taking the bigger step of embracing friendship will overcome fear and achieve greater heights.
