Cardin Statement on Ramadan

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Ben Cardin (D-MD), Ranking Member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee issued the following statement on the occasion of Ramadan.

“Ramadan is marked by a period of fasting and self-reflection, a time defined by prayer, service, and charity. These are universal values, embraced by communities of all faiths and religions.  Families across Maryland, throughout the United States, and around the world are now gathering daily to observe this holy month. Throughout this holiday, we must all be guided by acts of compassion and humanity, and together we must strive to uplift all of our communities, particularly those who are confronting challenges and struggles. We must always be guided by principles of caring and harmony. From my family to yours, Ramadan Kareem.”
