never experienced. These
were people that knew noth-
ing of me all from different
backgrounds and races
brought together by the
common thread of Islam. I
get excited every year when
Ramadan is near and this
year is no exception.
My first Ramadan could have
been something that sent
me packing from Islam but
instead it made me love this
religion even more. The
sense of community and love
that I felt that first night I
wanted to feel again and
again. This will be my third
Ramadan since converting
and I am more excited than I
have ever been and for me
Ramadan cannot get here
fast enough. So to my sisters
and brothers Ramadan
Mubarak to you all and May
Allah accept our fast and
make it easy on us all.
