    The morning after the election, when I awakened my twin ten-year old daughters with news of Donald Trump’s upset victory, each of them broke into tears and asked the same question: what will happen to our Muslim friends? I didn’t have a good answer, and I still don’t. But I do know this: here in Vermont it is our Muslim neighbors who are keeping America great and making us feel right at home.
  • Voting is a private matter; that's why there are curtains on the polling booths. So when I-ITALY Magazine asked for reflections upon my preference - and vote - for Donald Trump, I was hesitant, but agreed nonetheless to present what would be a counter opinion to many they had received.

    What prompts peoples to embark on perilous, unknown journeys in search of hospitable lands, if not desperation? For the vast majority of people around the world, the motives remain: hunger, oppression, war. These are good reasons to leave home. We should never demonize such people. They are us. This was our past. I have always referred to my parents as “economic refugees” due to the dire situation in which they (like so many others) found themselves after WWII. We pray it will never be our future. But it might.
