Maraming nagsasabi na Islam is the religion of peace pero tingnan mo ang mga most conflicted countries or areas, majority ng nandoon ay mga Muslim. Oo nga, napapaisip din ako. Kaya ang epekto sa akin ng Paris Attack ay naging reflexive ako. Inisip ko ang sarili ko, ang grupo ko, ang pangkat kung saan ako nabibilang. As a Muslim, it’s one of the times na minsan iniisip kong ayokong maging Muslim, mahirap maging Muslim. I just want to have a regular life, good job, and to save the world. Pero Muslim ako eh, hindi ko iyon maiaalis sa akin. Kaya tuloy pa rin ang paglaban sa name tagging, discrimination, and stereotyping. Because we should really push for a more accepting society, regardless of our religion, gender or race. We should be able to do what we want to do. We should have equal opportunities.
