As a Muslim, I’m sick of people asking me how I feel about 9/11. What do you want me to say, seriously? Do you want me to say, “It was a great plan, mwahahaha!” before I fly off on a magic carpet?
I was born and raised in this country and was just as shocked as everyone else to learn there were people on this earth so vile as to commit such a horrific attack - or to even think about doing it. But I didn’t do it. Neither did 99.999999999 percent of the roughly 1.5 billion people in the world who also call themselves Muslims. So why should I or any other Muslim apologize for what happened?
Nickleback is planning on releasing another album. Should I ask white people to apologize for that?
If you could only read one book for the rest of your life, what would it be?
it would have to be dreamland by sarah dessen. i feel like i can read that book every single day of my life and still find something new in it. i can relate to the subject matter. i feel like every relationship i’ve ever had leads me back to this book. depressing, but thrilling.
