To whom it may concern,

I am a 16 year old girl from Humberside Collegiate Institute, and I am an atheist. After hearing about yet another violent attack towards the Islam community recently on the news, I want to offer my support and love towards all those that have suffered due to Islamophobia. It’s absolutely appalling that people are still shown violence and prejudice just because of what they believe in. I will continue to fight for the rights of those choosing to put their faith in the Islamic religion, and my thoughts go out to all those scrutinized, injured, and killed simly for following it. May we all srtive towards building a nation free from violence.
