Happy Birthday America

American Muslim Voice is four years old today so on this special day, we are celebrating our humble achievements too. Last night, I watched four years roll by in front of my eyes. I was trying to make sense of all that had taken place during the past four years. I am concerned about the direction my country is moving towards. In my humble opinion, we are heading in the wrong direction by creating hate, anger and division, whether it is about the war on terror or  immigration issues. We must remain steadfast in protecting our country's honor, our liberties and our love for freedom.

We should not celebrate our independence every 4th of July  with just parades and fireworks. We should focus on our core values and think about what America stands for. It is not about waving flags on the 4th of July. It's about supporting all human beings in achieving the "American Dream", the
right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness!

Please remember our flag is only a symbol of our country but our Constitution is the soul of our great nation.

Let us make a pledge on this day that we will all work together to protect the soul of  America.

We will all work together towards restoring American values by treating all human beings as we would like to be treated.

We will all work together to create a culture of peace, acceptance, mutual respect and harmony in our communities- -where all of us will feel cherished, loved, safe and at home as one nation regardless of color, creed, religion or legal terminology. We should treat even the  strangers with respect and dignity.

We need an America with the wisdom of experience.  But we must not let America grow old in spirit.  - Hubert H. Humphrey

Happy 4th of July, America,
