Celebrating the Communities We Build

So, you may have noticed I missed a week, which is odd because I had something written, not this but something. My excuse is this – COVID has warped my sense of time, I go to make my Thursday call on Tuesday then on Friday I wonder how I missed Thursday. Holidays have the potential to go unnoticed too – I’m horrible with dates so forgetting my own birthday is fairly easy even in ...

How Can We Do Better?

There are both too many things to say and nothing to say. I am horrified and yet unsurprised, I am heartbroken for my friends who fear for their children, who have to have “the talk” with their young sons. I am longing for a leader who will work to weave the country back together rather than rip us apart.

I am heartbroken by the violence that has erupted and by the predatory ...

Unlawful Fireworks Activity in Hawthorne Requires Action

June 28, 2020

It is evident that friends and neighbors throughout Hawthorne have lately been disturbed by the frequent sounds, sights, and explosions of illegal fireworks.

There is a reason to believe, as Mayor Goldberg has cited in his second letter of this week, that a majority of the fireworks "are coming from Paterson," however he did mention he was "sure some of [Hawthorne's] ...

Kanita Tariq Grateful After "Muslims for Life" Blood Drive in Hawthorne

The onslaught of the COVID-19 pandemic has affected all global activities. There seems to be no end to the spread of the virus in the foreseeable future. And so, the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, of which I am a member, is partnering with the Red Cross to host nationwide blood drives as part of our "Muslims for Life" campaign. As a Muslim-American, I call on all my fellow Americans to ...

Glen Rock July 4 Parade Brings Out the Community on Rock Road

GLEN ROCK, NJ - It was still July 4 in Glen Rock as people masked-up and lined Rock Road seemingly eager to feel some normalcy after COVID-19 spoiled their spring, but maybe not their summer.

While it was muted, the message was clear at the annual Independence Day parade that brought out crowds eager to don their red, white and blue and honor their country during this 2020 year ...

Do You Know When You’re Happy?

“If you’re happy and you know it clap your hands, if you’re happy and you know it clap your hands, if you’re happy and you know it and you really want to show it if you’re happy and you know it clap your hands.”

Thinking about this song brings back joyous memories of dancing around my family room singing it with my children and perhaps, even having it sung ...

Tell Them While You Can

This story was recently shared with me. It is a beautiful example of the power of positive reinforcement.

One day a teacher asked her students to list the names of the other students in the class. She told them to think of the nicest things they could say about each of their classmates and write it down. The students completed the assignment, handed in their papers, and left the room. The ...

Carved In Stone

A Monumental History Lesson

On July 4, 1863, Union soldiers began the arduous and grizzly task of burying over 7,000 dead bodies in trenches and shallow graves. Later, as rains had washed away the ground cover re-exposing the stench of blackened and gnarled limbs, the town of Gettysburg took on the task of exhuming the bodies and consecrating them in the newly created Soldiers National ...

Life During War Time

I thought the shortage of toilet paper in March was bad. But now I find that soon we may not be able to secure illegal fireworks. What next, a run on citronella candles?

I am stocking up on rolls of Charmin again, which I plan to ignite and launch into the sky from my backyard on the 4th of July.

It is still June, and it seems everywhere fireworks are exploding without explanation.
