    I enjoyed the Iftar dinner. The food was delicious. I was able to meet with people of common interests. I also enjoyed the guest speaker. It is good to meet with others who have first hand experience of civil rights violations. This reminds us what is our purpose in life.....which is to fight for those who don't have a voice.
