Letter #11 to the Islamic community from a high school student after #MosqueShooting

To whom it may concern,

I send my regards to whom ever was affected by recent tragic events due to unjustifiable hate. My name is Jacob and I am 16 years old. I personally am atheist but am still trying to find a religion. I would just like to say that although I do not believe in a religion, I feel you should not be treated unequally due to a religious belief or ethnicity. What happened was very tragic and is unfortunately surprising considering we live in a country with a good Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

Much love,
