You Belong’: Man Offers Message of Support to Muslim Community

“You belong. Stay strong. Be blessed. We are one America.”

That’s the message on a sign that a man named Justin Normand recently held outside of the Islamic Center of Irving in Texas.

The gesture has warmed the hearts of many members of the center’s mosque and thousands more across the country, according to ABC station WFAA in Dallas.

A photo of Normand and the sign posted to Imgur this past Friday, Nov. 25, has been viewed more than 450,000 times as of this afternoon.

Normand, a Presbyterian Christian, wrote in a Facebook post this week that his sign was about showing solidarity with the Muslim community — which has been experiencing a “tremendous level of fear” after Donald Trump‘s surprise victory in the election, according to the Council on American-Islamic Relations.
