Ramadan began this week. In years past, I've made space in our school library for students who fast. I remember one year an especially lovely group of students visited the library rather than sit in the cafeteria during their lunchtime.
While fasting, these young people were personable, kind, fun, and friendly. They played fierce games of Uno or read silently, sometimes from a Qu'ran, or worked on jigsaw puzzles.
This year, students cannot collect in the library (don't worry another place has been arranged). During Ramadan, I miss students teaching me about their faith by observing them living it. Ramadan Mubarak, friends.
