Bomb Scare in Portland…

29 Nov

At this point, I’m sure everyone knows about Mohamed Osman Mohamud’s failed  attempt to bomb Pioneer Square.  While it is, of course, unsettling to learn of this bomb threat, it is even more important to know this was an act of an individual!  To paint an entire population with the same brush is dangerous and does only more harm. It is even more important now to be aware of Islamophobia and  to continue to fight against discrimination.
