Visiting Halal
By: Erwin L.

Yesterday afternoon a group of seven of us went to show our support to a local business owner and chef named Ed at Cedar Halal Foods, a restaurant that serves food that is permissible to eat according to Islamic law. Not only was the food delicious but Ed was very friendly, hospitable and a great host. We bought a bunch of meals and wrote him a nice card. I wanted him to know that despite the controversy that is happening in our country that we are thankful for the gifts that people of different backgrounds bring to our nation. 

I'm not sure what he thought of the note but I hope to see him again and support his local business.
