  • My Thoughts on What It Was Like to Speak Before 100+ Christians at VES

    by Qasim Rashid, Esq.

    Tonight I had the privilege of speaking at Virginia Episcopal School in Lynchburg, VA. The people in attendance were outstanding, intelligent, gracious, and sincere. They asked important questions about combatting extremism, women's rights, and how to elevate the voices of Muslims like me in the media. 

    The 100+ attendees reaffirmed my conviction that Americans are good, compassionate, and thoughtful individuals. The enemy is not Islam or Christianity or Republicans or Democrats. The enemy is ignorance and fear, and we can cure it with education and compassion.
