From the Blog…
A Couple of days ago, I blogged about the experience and reflections my staff and I shared while protesting with the Chicago Assyrian community against Al Qaeda’s murder of innocent Iraqi Christians. See: Beyond the Comfort Zone: Passion and Peril at a Pro-Christian Rally.
It seemed that the blog post was shared widely on Facebook. It was also published by the American Muslim, and the Chicago Tribune faith blog, among others. I was heartened to see that our humble gesture was embraced and echoed by Muslims and Christians alike from Chicago to London to Sydney.
Earlier today, I was even more heartened to receive an email response from the national Assyrian American leadership. See our email exchange below (published with permission).
