A Nice Ring.
While the knaves and fools who head our government continue to bar people from the US because of their religion — and make up terrorist attacks that never happened — the people of Canada are once again setting an example about how to act in the face of hate.
Hundreds of people across the country held hands and formed "rings of peace" around local mosques today as Muslims gathered for Friday services — like these folks at the Toronto-area Imdadul Islamic Center. Their message to microscopically-endowed-but-heavily-armed right-wing Trump fans: If you want to commit a hate crime here, you have to go through us first.
We cats love this — particularly because it was inspired by an incident two years ago, when Muslims in Oslo similarly surrounded Jewish temples after terrorist attacks.
At the end of another dark week, it's a nice reminder that Love Still Trumps Hate. We cats PURR.
