Remember 9/11 and Don't Put up a Mosque…
…even though there were Muslims killed in the destruction. Even though we wouldn’t think of prohibiting a Christian church being built near the site of an abortion clinic bombing.
We show our basest instincts when we turn from one religion because some of its members are terrorists. We show our highest values when we embrace a culture that is different than our own even though some of its members have hurt us. (The woman who lost her husband in the attacks of 9/11 but who helps the disadvantaged in Afghanistan inspires me.)
Today, let’s rise up to our highest values in memory of those who lost their lives, let’s not sink to our lowest.
