The bustling society we live in makes our lives fast-paced and abundant in people we meet. We are at the height of our traveling capabilities, which has only further advanced our society and the way we go about our daily lives. However, some suggest that our traveling capabilities have actually done more harm than good. Perry Patetic argues that the mobility of our society has harmed our close relationships, drawing us apart from our loved ones. Patetic states, “The advantages to living in such a highly mobile society are thus outweighed by the disadvantages.” Patetic claims that mobility has deteriorated our close relationships. This claim, however, is in many regards absurd. The vastly mobile society we live in gives us better opportunity

Even though I have never been on an airplane, I consider myself an international traveler. I live in the U.S. but I also have Lebanese immigrant parents. When I was younger, I used travel back and forth across international borders to fulfill my daily routine in one city. But; I was never Arab enough to fit in with “Arab” natives, and being Arab means that I would never be considered “American” enough. Because of this, I suffered from “identity jet lag”; and I always questioned where I belonged. My first stigma to my identity wasn’t from the outside world, but from the people who looked like me; Muslim/Arab women are often discouraged from following their passions, and told to follow a more traditional role. But as I grew older, I recognized

In my experience, what Martin Luther King Jr. calls “thinking intensively and critically” is very different from what my high school teachers called “critical thinking”, most especially by the way Dr. King links intelligence and learning to the development of character, that is, growth as a person. Too often in my past, teachers mentioned critical thinking only as a mental activity of seeing through stereotypes, evaluating both sides of issues and understanding and accepting differences. As worthwhile as these are, I have found that high level thinking without having a more enlightened character is simply inadequate. That was a recent, very positive experience with two very nice people of different faiths.
Being an Asian Muslim, I can relate very much to the components of prejudice Sonny Singh has experienced as stated in this article and have many examples that I can quote here from my life. However, for the sake of this discussion I want to share a recent experience of one of my friends who wears a hijab (headscarf) and is a doctor practicing medicine in New York. Covering the head with a head scarf is a religious
Have you ever seen something so horrifying, so disheartening, that you couldn’t even bring yourself to look away? Well, that was most of the population on September 11, 2001. Most were absolutely stunned, not able to even process what they just witnessed. In “From Terror to Hope,” by Kristin Lewis, we learn about a young girl who witnessed the September 11 attacks. Not only were thousands of innocent lives taken on that day, but soon after, a certain religion called Islam was attacked. In the end, though, September 11 made our country a whole again.

I am from a small city that is not culturally diverse. I was used to interacting with people that were from my same Hispanic culture. When I moved to Austin, I was fascinated by the range of cultures. A different encounter that I will always remember was meeting a now close friend of mine. She is a very involved Muslim while I do not believe in any religion. She is Pakistani and I am Hispanic. A day that I remember from being with her was a day we had to study for an exam all day. During the day she would excuse herself to pray and she had a limited diet when we went for our meals that day. She would also tell me stories about her culture at home and her religion. I became very fascinated with the idea that we all come from different places
Two things I found interesting reading this chapter is that over the years, Christianity has gone down two percent since the 1900’s in popularity and Islam’s numbers has skyrocketed by ten percent. This was due to high birth rates in highly Islamic countries. But, with Christianity going down two percent, that was only nominal practitioners as well.

“Behind every school and every teacher is a set of related beliefs - a philosophy of education – that influences what and how students are taught. A philosophy of education represents answers to questions about the purpose of schooling, a teacher’s role and what should be taught and by what methods.” (Teacher, Schools and Society. 2005).
