Relationships 101 – How 9/11 Changed America and Americans, and Conversation with an American Muslim

Dr. Beth (www.drbetherickson.com) did one of her famous Chalk Talks about the residue of fear and even paranoia that is now prevalent in our country after the attacks on 9/11. Although it a natural human tendency to fear the other, it has been heightened to near hysteria in the U.S. I then spoke with novelist and American Muslim, M. Salahuddin Khan (mskhan@sikanderthebook.com) about the scenes of everyday life in Pakistan and Afghanistan that he portrayed in his novel, in order to bridge the gap between our two cultures.
