Hello, I am glad to find this site. I've been posting for a few days now, and am enjoying the discussions. I am the author of "This is what I am" and wrote it as a reaction to the ignorance in the Media about Muslim Americans. I generally have positive reactions from the people who meet me face to face, and so I just wanted to get the non-Muslim population of America to get to know me, as I am one of you, in every sense. I am looking forward to many lively exchanges.
