The following post was written by Meditating Muslima. I have never posted a reblog from someone else’s blog, but I felt this was meant to be. Part of the theme for this month on my blog is “the time is now”. So not only was this story appropriate, but wonderfully written and courageous. For 2013 the time is now, to be whoever you choose to be. I thank Meditating Muslima for this wonderful post and hope you all enjoy.
