    you don't realize that Muslims also died on September 11th.  Allow me to introduce you to two of them... Shakila Yasmin, age 26 and her husband, Nurul Miah, age 36.  

    Shakila was the daughter of my co-worker, and Nurul was his son-in-law.  Two days after 9/11 I received an email from my friend that said (I'm paraphrasing),

    "My daughter and her husband worked at the World Trade Center.  We have not heard from them and are going to New York to look for them.  We are Muslims from Bangladesh.  Please pray for my two angels."

    Here are links to their tribute pages:

    Nurul

    I have made a point of visiting the World Trade Center site almost every time I am in New York City, to pay my respects.  Each time I go, I leave two roses, one for each of them.  I look forward to being able to pay my respects at the new Mosque and Community Center when it opens.
