muslims in america

today i visited the UMMA clinic. UMMA stands for university muslim medical association. UMMA started with a group of muslim med students who wanted to do something to help the community after the riots in the early 90's. the video below tells their story. it almost made me a muslim!

Islam teaches its followers to serve and give. it is inclusive and compassionate. i am so happy to see an organization who can demonstrate a different view of muslims in america. their story is compelling. i hope you enjoy this video! if you double click on the video it will open up into youtube and then you can read the comments. the comments are from around the world and SUPER interesting...
