My husband posted this the day of the attacks on the U.S. Embassy in Tunisia:
I represented the Embassy at the opening of the first Mosque in the Marshall Islands yesterday. The Imam's sermon was on approaching God from wherever we are in life. At the end, he strongly decried the violence at U.S. Embassies around the world. Afterwards he spoke to me personally and said he was sorry about what is happening in the Middle East and Maghreb. I felt nothing but love and a sincere attempt to approach God in the mosque. During this very difficult time, I hope my fellow Americans will not mistake the hatred of some for the religion of Islam.
I choose to be better.
