Overwhelmed by the turnout to #ThornabyMosque‘s open day. Hundreds of people turned up, we chatted, we laughed, we cried and we tackled important and challenging questions that people had. This is the power of engagement and dialogue.
Just some of the feedback we got: “Everything is now clear in my mind”, “Learned a lot”, “Can’t believe how much we have in common”. We had children playing, making friendship bracelets for Muslim kids and people happy, emotional and even crying.
“You guys should be so proud of yourself, not only are you teaching peace, you are bringing the community together, which is what this country (and many others) need right now.
United we are strong, divided we fall.”
The key takeaway message was the importance of, Knowledge, Justice and Family.
Just a beautiful day. Thank you to all involved, good will always prevail over evil when good people come together
