Texas man with 'You belong' sign outside Irving mosque lauded after Facebook post goes viral
EXCERPT: DALLASNEWS.COM
A man who held a sign reading "You belong" in front of the Islamic Center of Irving is being lauded on Facebook after photos of his act went viral.
 
Justin Normand, a 53-year-old man who lives and works in Dallas, identified himself Monday as the man holding the sign. He said he had the urge to "share peace with [his] neighbors" after the election results rolled in Nov. 9., so he went out on his own last weekend and did just that.

 

 
"I have been in a malaise and turmoil since the election, as have many of the people in my community," Normand said. "It was just an expression of mine. This happened because I needed to do something, and I had nothing else that I could do."
 
Normand, who manages a Dallas sign shop, made the sign himself. It reads in full: "You belong. Stay strong. Be blessed. We are one America."
