A letter to the Mayor 2014

Respected People,

I live in Walsall in the U.K.  I am a student from Hillary primary School.  I love my country and my school.  I also love Asia because it’s where my parents come from.  I am an Ahmadi Muslim girl.  In Walsall and in my school I can be as free as I want.

Here are no religious races or boundaries of culture.  Every religion is treated with respect.  Sometimes my mum says that she is proud of my school because the Headteacher or school staff never do anything against our religion or culture, and they respect every religion.  Here every religion has equal rights to live, according to their own culture.

I think a human life is the most important thing in the world, so we should respect humanity and need to treat other humans with equal rights and freedom.  If every country respects other countries, every religion respects other religions and majority respects minority, then it will be a guarantee of peace in the world.
