What Does Peace Mean To You? Amira ElghawabyWritten by Muslims of Ottawa
Muslim Link is continuing its series Muslims of Ottawa. At the Canadian Muslims for Peace, we asked Muslims who attended: What Does Peace Mean To You?. Here is the response of one of the organizers, Amira Elghawaby with the National Council of Canadian Muslims (NCCM).
For me, peace means creating and maintaining conditions that allow everyone to feel safe, comfortable, and supported in fulfilling their personal potential. Peace is also a state of mind, heart, soul, and body, nurtured by cohesive and caring communities. Ever since I can remember, this is what Canada has provided me, and what I have worked hard to contribute to and to protect. I am truly grateful for these blessings.
