Over the years, a lot of people have been telling you, what to think about Muslims? They say you should fear me, hate me, suspect me, but the truth is that I don't want to impose my faith on you. I don't want to take over this country, and I don't support terrorism in any form.
Islam teach me to respect all people and stand up for justice for all. I am here, and I have been here for generations - wanting the same things you do - the chance to pursue life, liberty and happiness.
I am an American. I am a Muslim. This is my faith. This is my voice.
