Faith and Loyalty: Muslim memories of Frederick

Being a member of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA, I come together with my American brothers and sisters to say, “I will always remember the sacrifices of our veterans.”

As I was walking through West Patrick Street this past Veterans Day in Frederick, I was thinking about the military history that had affected this area. It was nearing dusk and I came upon the intersection of West Patrick Street (the National Road) and South Market Street (Md. 355). I saw an exhibition panel that had the words “Crossroads of America” written on it. Even though it was describing a physical crossroad, it also expressed how the crossroads of loyalty and love for this nation can bring Americans together.

The three years of my childhood that I spent in this modest town years ago allowed me to be the American-Muslim I am today. Being a member of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA, I come together with my American brothers and sisters to say, “I will always remember the sacrifices of our veterans.”
