“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.”
~ Martin Luther King Jr.
American Muslims particularly have also taken it upon themselves to show that they are active and engaged members of society who are deeply committed to peace, understanding and tearing down stereotypes.
However, in the years since 9/11 there has also been an increase in hate crimes against Muslims.
The views and opinions of members of the American public vary greatly. In this video, made with the use of hidden cameras, you will see how different Americans respond when they witness first hand, hatred directed toward a Muslim.
How would your respond?
It is my deepest hope that we, as individuals and a nation, continually evolve in our hearts and minds to fully embrace the oneness that unites all of us.
We need to go beyond tolerance and learn to value, celebrate and embrace the diversity that is so small compared to all that we have in common as one humanity.
