in response to reader comment: Dear Kiana....If Muslims Want to Be Known as Peaceful, then They Must Show It

Hi Abbie I was perusing through the website, (planning to attend the six flags event this year. )I saw a response with my name on it, got kind of excited, don't see my name on blogs too often. I understand how you feel. I am a black former christian convert. I agree it is disheartening to not hear a lot about muslims against terror but there are people out there. Even ICNA the group sponsoring the event has a disclaimer at the side scroll of its page condemning terror.

Most muslims in this country are like you. We work, go to school take care of our children and live our lives like a regular person. It is just a religion that we practice. I have never, nor do i know anyone at all that has rallied about cartoons, or anything of that nature. But i know that personally i have gone to peace sedars, and intereligious marches in my neighborhood. I go to six flags on a normal day, dorney park, clemonton park, sesame place... I just like water rides and Roller Coasters. A

nyways, I think there should be a christian day at six flags. And maybe someone here should convince their churches to rent the park for a day, and i would probably go that day too, i like gospel music. None the less to respond to you , how would you like me to speak out. I have spoken out, but if no one hears me then people like you think that I am not. I don't have special connections with muslim countries, how do i write to them. That may not be a bad idea, i'll see what i can do when i get off of work about that one. Speaking of which i have to go back to work now so until later.
