Helping to make the world a better place
I have requested permission to enter a mosque in San Francisco, where I would like to get a chance to hear the Muslim community's feelings about some of the things happening in the world today. If all goes well, I could head over there on Monday. This outreach is part of an investigative journalism piece I have decided to put together. My goal is to get an understanding of where the country stands morally and politically over the next few weeks, with a plan of putting it all together in an op-ed I would like to submit to one of the local newspapers by the end of the year. In addition to the Muslim Community, I also plan on visiting the Israeli consulate in San Francisco and the offices of some anti-war and pro-troop movements like "World can't wait and "Move America forward". Each visit is sure to bring about some very different views and opinions, but that's what America is all about.
