On the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 World Trade Centre attacks, I was humbled by the strength, courage and humility of Muslims as they expressed, many for the first time, how they felt on that fateful day. Over the weekend, I spent some time reading some of these thoughtful expressions (one happened to be written by my talented cousin Dina for her college newspaper – total proud mama moment there). But of all the pieces I found, this story, honestly and beautifully recanted by Imam Khalid Latif, the Executive Director and Chaplain at the Islamic Center at NYU and the Muslim Chaplain for NYPD, was by far my favourite.
