Muslims looked down upon..even more..

On Wednesday, October 16 2012, a 21-year-old, Bengali guy got caught in a terrorist act, trying to blow up the New York Federal Reserve Bank, located in the heart of Manhattan, New York.

So this guy, Quazi Mohammad Rezwanul Ahsan Nafis, comes to America on a student visa and decides he wants to do something “big”. Unlike other immigrants who travel to the U.S. to study, get a career, save money to can support their family, he stated that he wants to

“shake the whole country” and “destroy America, behalf on Al Qaeda.”

So, I’m guessing he missed 9/11? I’m pretty sure the WORLD was already shaken up by that.

What really is bothersome here about this is that, his parents spent everything, all their life savings, to get their son started to a better life. Don’t forget, Bangladesh is a poor country. Well ok, not that poor, but work is hard to find, and saving for a child’s education?, even harder. Imagine what his parents are going through right now to find that their son has plotted a stupid act, that not only disgraced his family, but the whole country as well. His father believed he was devoted into his studies. Yea..probably trying to master the study of terrorism.

From where I live, I can view some of the building of Manhattan. For example the Chrysler Building, The Empire State Building, and The World Trade Center (ten years ago). I was in the third grade. I can’t remember much, but some things I can’t forget about that day. The lunch period just started as I was eating in the cafeteria when all of a sudden the teachers came down to take their classes back up into the classrooms. When my class went back to our room,
