How about instead of fostering hate and resentment towards a group who is defamed and slandered unjustly on a daily basis, you fight up against that
hate. You do not do it by suspecting every Muslim or arab, or suspect illegal immigrant. You fight hate by starting your day with a smile. You live

ideological beliefs. The people you see on TV are not the same people you may work with, brush by on the tube, in the street, at the grocer, or those
who deliver goods to your home.
