"Hurricane Katrina struck during #Ramadan ten years ago.  It was a hard-felt blow upon the community I lived in, the community I was raised in, and the community where my family lives. It was a time never to be forgotten. " http://on.fb.me/1GmftvG   #StoriesAtSunset @icnarelief #icnarelief

"In India, emotionally rich relationships seemed to have formed on auto-pilot. Here, it was all about scaling walls of others' "alone time" and "my own space" to make friends.
