A young Utah girl greeted the family that arrived as refugees from Afghanistan on February 2, 2017. The girl had tears streaming down her cheeks as she looked at the family and hugged and spoke to the daughter her same age. To my surprise, she looked up at me and said she was lucky enough to speak a language similar to the new arrivals, and told me she was from Iran. She was overcome with emotion, and told me, "Muslims are not terrorists."
