Being Muslims after 9/11 attack
Many of us who are non muslims are not able to experience the difficulties Muslim people are experiencing today. 10 years after September 11 attack, stereotypes towards Muslims is still happening. There’s the chronic worry of security at large Muslim gatherings for Muslims people, there’s the stress of finding a place to pray that won’t freak out coworkers. Muslims are arriving at the airport ridiculously early to deal with “flying while Muslim,” where random checks don’t feel random at all, a feeling still embedded in the minds of many Muslims, 10 years after the Twin Towers fell. For many of them, life is not better after the September 11 attack. Many of them are living in the shadows to avoid the stereotypes towards them.
