Muslims were also killed on 9/11

I was a Christian the day on 9/11. I was living in a small town in the Midwest, far from the Arab land and Islmaic Religion I am living now. On that day, I felt fear. Just as all the other Americans like me. There was one thing that differed for me though. I wasn't afraid of the big bad "mulsim" as most of the other people were around me. I didn't indulge in the hatred or the lets go get them attitude. No, instead I was afraid of the BAD people in the world. I was afraid of the fact that no matter who you were, or what religion you were, if the bad people in the world, whoever they may be, want to hurt you or for what your goverment stands for they will. From that day forward I was on a quest. I wanted to know more. I wanted to understand. I can honestly say now that I dont understand. I do, however, know more. I know that Muslims also died in the attack of 9/11. It wasnt just Conservative Christians or Jews. All of us were effected. I feel a great deal of sympathy on this day but yet at the same time a huge feeling of joy. Joy because today, 9 years ago, I was introduced to Islam. The wonderful religion that is now mine and millions of other people on this planet. I hate the fact that these "so called Muslims" are hiding behind the name of Islam to carry out there own crazy agenda. In the end, We all have God to answer to.

I have attached a list of Muslim brothers and sisters that also lost their lives on 9/11. May we all take a moment of silence for all or brothers and sisters who lost their lives that day. Christian, Jew, Budist, Hindu and Muslims..................................May God protect us all....
