I'm a 14-year-old girl who was raised a Jewish in a Christian family and later converted to Islam. My goal is to educate myself in order to educate others, and become a bridge from Islam to not only Judaism and Christianity, but other religions as well. I believe in freedom of speech and equality, patience and understanding, love and kindness, faith and hope.
Why I want peace:
I'm fed up with seeing pictures of scenes of suicide bombings, people burning texts that are considered sacred to others, and people shouting sexual, racial, and religious slurs on television. We are all humans, and we need to accept each other to make the world a better place. We can't create peace by saying "Death to the infidels" or "Down with the USA." We need to work together as a community, as a people, to achieve peace, and find a common enemy.
