Today I went to the New Tampa Mosque to wish my friends a happy and peaceful Ramadan
and check in.
I am always proud of the rich cultural and religious diversity that we have in Tampa, including New Tampa. We are one community with many religious faiths and cultural traditions, but united by our best historic American values.
And I always love to hear the stories of immigration from these congregants - most came here knowing limited English and “strangers in strange land ” and today they and their children live the American dream.
