Thank your for your insightful editorial on Jan. 21 regarding our Muslim neighbors in the Willmar community.

We winter in California and we even had received an email with that biased piece that you referred to in your editorial out here.

We responded back to the sender by stating that was NOT the Willmar we know and love.

Sadly, too many people forward such erroneous and mean-spirited emails without bothering to check the sources, causing prejudice and divisiveness to foster and grow. We can all do our small part to improve our communities and world by not forwarding such “garbage” and instead challenging people who do.
