On March 2nd, Stan and I presented at Fred T. Korematsu Elementary School in Davis.

Engaged kids with lots of questions. When I said we had sold out of books and that they were printing 3,000 more, one boy said, "That should be three million!" Then had three girls come up to us. They said that when their mosque was recently vandalized, they organized a fund-raiser at the school to help pay for repairs, and that there had been so much community support. They are in the photo - Jana, Mona and Batool - and they are members of the Islamic Center of Davis. They were smiling and seemed so proud of what they'd done. It's such an honor to be speaking to these kids, who are positive, motivated and ready to take action. That's the hope, right there!
