his is a holy time of year in which followers of the Muslin, Jewish and Christian religions celebrate a major event. Our Muslim brethren are celebrating Ramadan, a period of fasting and spiritual growth, which is one of the “five pillars of Islam”. Our Jewish neighbors are celebrating the Passover – a feast which commemorates the Israelites exodus from Egypt, their transition from slavery to freedom.
And Christians celebrate Easter, one of the most important days on the Christian calendar, which marks the resurrection of Jesus on the third day after his crucifixion. Each religion preaches a mission of love, but how they have each persecuted others in the name of religion in the past!
