This book on the left The #TrueAmerican is worth your read. The story of two men with strong claims to this country. One was born here and so broken and confused and hate filled that he responded to 9/11 by shooting three South Asian gas station clerks. Two died. The one who survived is the other subject of this book. A Bangladeshi immigrant who found it in himself and Islam to forgive his attacker and fight to free him from death row. #readthisbook   High-res
