My Fellow American

6/8/2011—I would like to take a moment to introduce my blog readers to a website that seeks to challenge the mistrust of Muslims in America, both our fellow Muslim citizens and visitors. The website is entitled “My Fellow American” and it can be found here

Let me quote from the home page: “My Fellow American is an online film and social media project that calls upon concerned Americans to pledge and spread a message that Muslims are our fellow Americans. It asks people of other backgrounds to pledge, and share a real life story about a Muslim friend, neighbor, or colleague that they admire. Using the power of social media, My Fellow American seeks to change the narrative of Muslims as the other, to Muslims as our fellow Americans.”

I hope you will all visit the site and encourage this important and needed work. My only problem with the site is a feeling of embarrassment that, in this country historically dedicated to religious liberty, such an effort should be necessary. Nevertheless, it is.
