Letter #14 to the Islamic community from a high school student after #MosqueShooting

I am a 16 year old girl, living in Toronto. Although I was raised by my Christian mother, I do not believe in any god or follow any faith. In this time where there is so much hate, I would like the Islam people to know that I support them and send nothing but love to thme. I felt terrible after hearing about all that has has been happening in North America, and especially about the murders in Quebec I can’t imagine what it must feel like or the fear you all must have but I wish to do everything I can to make you feel safe again. No people should ever be trageted because of where they come, what they believe in, or how they identify, and I know I speak for my entire family and all my friends when I say this. Wishing you peace, happiness, love and safety,

A grade 11 student.
