Rochelle, thank you for sharing your beautiful background. My father is an Iranian Jew and my mother, although also from Iran, is Muslim. Although I don’t know you, I felt conencted to your experience because of our similar backgrounds.
I have no idea if anyones even reading this but im going to go ahead anyway. Thanks for the share, I also feel connected as my mother is jewish and father is afghan. For most my life i was at odds with where i belong, who i am, what i believe etc but now, aged 24 i feel that it doesnt really matter. It might be weird or odd but normal is subjective and keeping kosher as well as halal is normal for me …and im (finally) ok with that: )
Rochelle, I truly like very single work you’ve written. It’s always my dream that this fear of muslims just ends. I’m, perhaps similar to your mother, from a saudi arabian shia muslim family, but I don’t practice islam. I actually consider myself an agnostic.
