In God We Trust –US Dollars


webphoto_11432_resizeIn Canada today it seems we too often offend newly arrived immigrants from Muslim lands. They don’t like our dogs, their women are not allowed to show their faces, if a Muslim sneezes and we say God Bless, they are offended,  their women are segregated and often treated as mere belongings. They object to our laws, we are a nation that does not allow Honour killings!! we do not approve stoning or punishment of young women who have been raped. However, there is one thing they do approve of and that is our currency! I haven’t heard any complaints about it so far. Nor have there been complaints regarding the US Dollar, which clearly states “In God We Trust”. They take our money happily whether it be earned or a social welfare payment, and they enjoy the benefits and bounties of this great land as if they are entitled.  I immigrated in 1966, I felt privileged to be allowed into Canada,  I have always treated her laws and customs with respect, I’m a citizen now and a proud Canadian, I have, I believe done my part perhaps in a small way, to make the nation prosper and grow.  I have touched the lives of many of our youth and have always endeavored to set a good example. It is time our Muslim immigrants learned to do the same.

God Bless and keep reading
