We often hear people talking about accentuating the positive and not letting negative acts impact us. While these words are great, the true test comes when people are confronted by unwarranted negative actions intended to demean them. As community members in Burlington have seen and heard, the members of OUR local mosque (The Islamic Center of Burlington) had their place of worship defaced this past weekend with USA painted multiple times on its outside walls and sign.
The pictures below show the manner in which the members of the Islamic Center of Burlington chose to respond to this incident. They posted their own comments surrounding the spray painted USA which showed how they feel about their community and their country and turned this ignorant act into a touching display of Patriotism.
