This is the most inspiring quote from the article from Dr. Younus:
What, then, keeps the American minorities so committed to the United States? The answer lies in the wounds of the police officers recuperating in Wisconsin’s hospitals. American minorities are cognizant that no matter how much hate the bigots spew and no matter how many bullets the lunatics fire, the institutions and the Constitution of America are on their side.
I wonder if there is a connection here to this week’s OT reading from I Kings 19:4-8. Elijah is retreating from ongoing religious violence when angels care for him.
