Muslim Ban: Cowardly and Disgraceful

Here is a beautiful picture of Prime Minister Trudeau welcoming a Syrian family to Canada. Seeing this Syrian family smile makes my heart warm because you can see how happy they are.

I am so happy and proud to be Canadian but that sentence alone would be selfish because life is all about love and unity. What makes me proud beside being a Canadian here in Denver, is seeing all the wonderful Americans who are making their voices heard by peaceful protest. I think the cruel decision that President Trump decided on Friday, to temporarily ban all people from seven Muslim nations and to suspend Syrian refugees from entering the United States is disgraceful. Trump says he wants to strengthen borders but is that really what is happening? In times like this, I think it is good to make your voices heard, use your power, use your strength. The time to fight against diversity and racism is now. Don’t sit back and let this continue, these are real people whom were affected by this horrible decision and their lives matter. Personally I think love and unity are the most important things about life. As I mentioned in the Women’s March post, when we unite with love, so many beautiful things can be accomplished.

I know I haven’t posted anything for these past five days unfortunately, however I do intend to get back on posting regularly. I hope you enjoyed this post and stay tuned for more!
