Last night was one of my favorite nights ever.
I layed in the middle of a soccer field with two of my best friends and smoked. We looked at the sky and talked about things that everyone thinks is too weird to say. How vast the world is, how fucked up the world we’re growing up in is.
I live for those moments. It makes me sad at the same time.. When we leave, will it be the same? I know life goes on and you get new friends.. But will it mean that much to me?
As a Muslim, I’m sick of people asking me how I feel about 9/11. What do you want me to say, seriously? Do you want me to say, “It was a great plan, mwahahaha!” before I fly off on a magic carpet?
I was born and raised in this country and was just as shocked as everyone else to learn there were people on this earth so vile as to commit such a horrific attack - or to even think about doing it.
But I didn’t do it. Neither did 99.999999999 percent of the roughly 1.5 billion people in the world who also call themselves Muslims. So why should I or any other Muslim apologize for what happened? Nickleback is planning on releasing another album. Should I ask white people to apologize for that?"
