Up early to have a small sahour meal before sunrise. We are now on the twentieth day of Ramadhan. i’m not muslim but i do join my muslim colleagues and neighbours in fasting every year as a sign of respect and empathy.
i want my colleagues to know that i know what they are going through this month as we neither eat nor drink from before sunrise til after sunset, approximately 14 hours every day. The only Christian in a totally Islamic educational institution, i’m more than willing to assist my teachers as they strive to improve their lesson planning, preparation and execution as they deal with the rigours of fasting.
Also listening to the tennis from Flushing Meadow on http://www.usopen.org. Too bad Hewitt was knocked out by the Fed Express.
