Muslim San Diego Residents Call For Halal School Lunches

When people immigrate to our country, they should be willing to conform to our society in which religion is a personal preference, not a way of life that all citizens should be expected to conform to. For example, my sister is a vegetarian but she did not expect that school lunches would become vegetarian to please her personal preference. Therefore, if she wanted her children to eat a vegetarian lunch, she would fix it for them to take to school. If Moslem mothers want their children to eat halal food, they should prepare a lunch for their children to take to school, not expect that the school will change its menu to suit their religious preferences. This expectation seems outrageous to me. The immigrants are the ones who should change, not the citizens who were born here and grew up accustomed to a free society.
