For many Muslim Americans, 9/11 was a double punch of tragedy and bigotry

The actions of 19 Islamic extremists on 9/11 left an indelible mark on America. Today, millions pause to commemorate the attacks’ 13th anniversary, to honor the victims and to remember that all life is special and sacred. But there’s an untold story amid the many speeches and moments of silence — one filled with a different kind of pain, grief and strong sense of loss. 

Those stories are now being told on social media

I once watched a documentary about 9/11 and the Mosque where a majority of the Muslims went to for safety were getting terrible calls from other people. Leaving messages they were going to kill their children and other awful things. It was a short segment but it stuck. 9/11 is unforgettable but how the Muslims have been treated shouldn’t be forgotten as well.
