Ahmed H. Sharif, a taxi driver, was stabbed by a passenger on Tuesday.
In that spirit, let me declare that we in New York are Jews and Christians and Muslims, and we always have been. And above all of that, we are Americans, each with an equal right to worship and pray where we choose. There is nowhere in the five boroughs that is off limits to any religion.
By affirming that basic idea, we will honor America's values and we will keep New York the most open, diverse, tolerant, and free city in the world.
TOLERANT..... that is the key word.
DIVERSE ..... another key word.
Speeches are fine, but let us together work towards the day when hate crimes based on one's colour, creed or nationality become history.
Let us together work to establish a real citizens committee against defamation and hate, one that will not only battle hatred, but the hate groups in disguise as well.
Let us consume hatred before it consumes all of us, one by one..... ACT NOW.... before they come for you!
