*In disgusted reaction to yesterday’s comments about banning Muslim’s from entering the US.
Dear Donald Trump,
You can try to divide us. To stir up hate, ignorance and intolerance. You can try to single out our friends, neighbors, and classmates, telling us to live in fear.
But that is NOT our America.
The America I’m raising my daughters Mira, Izzy and my son Kanen, to become proud citizens of, DOES accept each other. My children DO NOT see race, religion, or sexual orientation, they see PEOPLE. They see their friends. Not because they are special, but because these are the values they have learned from birth, values that are part of their DNA.
Their world does not see your darkness.
You may say that’s idealistic, and maybe it is, but as parents we have a choice. We can either feed into racism, bigotry, hatred, profiling, fear and the like, or we can create an entirely new generation of future leaders, who will lead with the values that America was built upon.
I for one will #RiseUp
Proud American Mom.
#RiseUp Our America
