There is many religions that god has created but us as humans have to respect each other. My country is at war, kids starving and I'm sitting Here feeling bad everytime I throw a meal when I'm full. That part of my meal could have fed a family in Afghanistan. Even though my situation is that I as a brother, as a man as a student. as a person that grew up in America without a father that got taken away from god here in search for the American dream and the happiness.of his family. I love being in America and the people in it. I love the security you feel as a citezen and I love how the country comes together in a hard time. I thank god for bringing me to America, a land where opportunity of a bright future is in your hands. I'll leave u guys w a quote from 2pac " keep your head up" and another quote that all of us as humans can bagde for "Ihdinā ṣ-ṣirāṭ al-mustaqīm" Quran 1:6 Guide us to the true path;
