“Throughout history, religious differences have torn people and entire nations apart.
Even in recent months, headlines have been full of hate crimes and acts of terrorism, both across the ocean and here in Washington.
But on the evening of June 16, about 100 people of many different faiths gathered at the Pine Lake Community Center in Sammamish to celebrate a traditional Ramadan Iftar dinner with the local Muslim community. Although half the people at the dinner were not practicers of Islam, they came together in a show of unity to demonstrate that the bonds of love and friendship are stronger than any differences between people.”
