What your Mother told you

Reader comment on item: The Evil Isn't Islam

I live in a working class, suburban neighborhood in the American Pacific Northwest. I have a 9 to 5 job. My wife and I are in the last phase of raising two teenage daughters. I am not college educated. I was seven years old when JFK was assassinated in Dallas.
I live in a very diverse neighborhood. There are Southeast Asians, Eastern Europeans, African Americans in our little neighborhood. We have Muslim neighbors. They are among the nicest, most considerate people I have ever known in my life. I have never once had the feeling that they hated or resented us because we are not of the same faith as they are. They have shown nothing but kindness and consideration to us and the rest of our neighbors.
