Sakina Grome, from the Islamic Center of Greater Cincinnati, Ohio, and Stephanie Cline, a student at Mother of Mercy High School in Cincinnati, work together on a service project at the Imago Earth Center.
EVERYONE in these United States over the age of 10 has something to say about the events of September 11, 2001. We can read, rage, mourn, puzzle, debate and argue about those events—at great length. It is often a very circular conversation around the dinner tables with our own kith and kin. Not enough of us engage with the Muslim community—or do we? St. Anthony Messenger did a random sampling to gain a handle on Catholic engagement with Muslims coast to coast. It’s not necessarily a hot trend, but those who have actually met their Muslim neighbors feel engaged, respectful, inspired and—more often than not—enthusiastic.
