Student’s column on embracing differences published in Green Bay Press-Gazette

UW-Green Bay student Aisha Umar urges dialogue, awareness and embracing cultural differences in a column that ran in the Green Bay Press-Gazette. The piece, which ran with the headline “Bridge misunderstanding to create a peaceful society,” was the latest in the paper’s series of “Today’s Take” columns, which are written by newspaper staffers and community members and featured daily on page A3. Umar’s column talks about her personal experience as a Muslim student on campus and emphasizes the importance of interfaith dialogues and mutual respect. “The question I always ask is, ‘Can we all get along and love one another?’” Umar writes. “The answer I hope to hear is, ‘Yes, we can all get along, and yes, we can all truly love one another.’ So, dear readers, I extend a challenge to you and request that you walk to someone who is different from you and try to understand them.” The full post can be read here.
