So much of what we hear and read about in the United States is negative about the Middle East. There is good and bad in every culture and extremists of every religion exist. In Egypt, I found that people admire Americans (and not just our money) and see us as setting a standard. We are accepted as friends. Muslim people are people of deep religious faith. The call to prayer resonates from every minaret in the city and people stop what they are doing to pray. We had guides who were Muslim and those who were Christian. They are all exemplary human beings. If we Americans could only open our eyes and be as honest and kind as the people of Egypt, we would be light years ahead of where we are, Granted, Egypt’s history is longer than ours. I just hope we don’t have to wait centuries for peace, love an harmony to permeate our society.
