Ramadan Mubarak to all!
Last night we had the pleasure of joining our Muslim friends to break their fast in Dunkirk.
Firstly we wanted to thank them for their generosity and kindness. As someone who is not taking part in Ramadan, I had eaten throughout the day and been able to drink. They had not, however they had offered us their first servings of food. This humbling experience showed us the determination and courage of these exceptional people and how much they deserve the life they are seeking.
Any stigmas you may see in mainstream media about muslims, I have come to believe are nothing but lies. In my time here all I have seen is see tolerance, respect, sympathy, understanding, good intentions and goodwill.
Ramadan Mubarak to all you guys you are amazing people.
