Welcome to Silver and Shadow

"Look at that sea, girls--all silver and shadow and vision of things not seen. We couldn't enjoy its loveliness any more if we had millions of dollars and ropes of diamonds." -L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables

This is a blog I will be using for topics other than food. Politics, religion, spirituality, humor, green living, anything that I want to talk about that doesn't fall under the food/cooking category.

Eid's a Wonderful Life, or Is It?

Just read an article on CNN that left me feeling pretty upset. Eid this year ends around 9/11/10 this year, and because of the perception that Muslims would be celebrating 9/11 instead of the end of Ramadan, many celebrations are being canceled. In the meantime, a group of so-called Christians are planning a "Burn a Quran" day for 9/11. So, people who are supposed to have the freedom to worship in this nation are being forced, though admittedly not by the government, to not worship as they want to, and at the same time, another group of people is allowed to disrespect them and their beliefs. How is this fair? Grrrr!!
