My beautiful & amazing friend of many years, Chanel, has been moved to start a wonderful project called Hug A Muslim. Totally upset with the hatred that is being shown to Muslims in our country, she has come up with a wonderfully simple movement. Chanel says:
"I went right up to them and explained I was appalled by the plans to burn Korans and I wanted to hug them and start a movement, begin the chain of peace that WILL counteract the proposed hatred. WE HUGGED! It was a beautiful thing. I now have a Muslim friend and they have a Christian friend and the world is that much better."
As a member of a religion whose teachings are often totally misunderstood & misconstrued, I feel very much a connection to American Muslims. Let's show the world that we are not all close minded, paranoid people full of hatred. We are human beings with an amazing capacity to love other human beings. Join in & spread some love. Share a photo in the photo group or help spread the word to your friends.
Let's be awesome together!
