"I was born in Memphis and have been living here my whole life. I think American Muslim youth in general are at a crossroads. In order to assure that we can do what’s best for our future generations, I believe that it’s important we never lose sight of the fact that we are all brothers and sisters in Islam. While contemporary culture espouses the virtues and ideals of individualism, we would do well to remember that we are all one Ummah, and that means we should be there for each other to celebrate our successes and help each other overcome our failures.
