Through reading your newspaper, I have discovered something interesting. Even though I am from a village in Canada, I realized that there are more similarities than discrepancies when I look at Yemen and compare it to my country.
I hope you regard our efforts, as Canadians, struggling for world peace, as much as I respect Yemenis' struggles. It is not easy to live with what is going on – whether you live across the world from the USA or whether you live right next door to the USA.
I am learning very moving lessons from your articles on Ramadan. This month is indeed a challenging time. I take to heart the lessons I am learning during Ramadan.
