LAWTON, OK (KSWO) - The American Muslim Association of Lawton took part in planting a tree to promote unity between all religions in the city. They planted it outside the association's new mosque on Northwest Birch Avenue earlier Saturday. The association has about 150 members.
As well as making the grounds around the mosque beautiful, the association used planting the small tree as a symbol of them growing and planting roots in the community. They are hoping this will lead to a dialog within the community about Islam, and that everyone can learn how to co-exist.
