"Keep your head low." My mother said those words to me sometime after Sept. 11, 2001. It left me baffled and confused at the age of 10. What did my being Muslim have to do with an attack that turned buildings into ash and rubble more than 700 miles away?

Message we received in our inbox from a reader. There is good in this world...

"Hello. I just wanted to message you guys, because I know many Muslims are facing discrimination because of the extremists. I'm sorry that you guys are facing it. I know that not all Muslims are bad. In fact the minority are. Remember, never let anyone get to you because of your faith. This is the United States, and everyone has the right to practice their religion on how they see fit. I joined th...e United States Military, and I serve to protect the country, of not just Christians, but all Americans. I also joined, so I can potentially go into the Middle East and fight the extremists who are there. I did not join to harm any innocent person. The groups such as ISIS and Al Qaeda make me sick. Anyway, be proud of who you are, and don't let anyone tell you that you are all evil."
