For several years now I have talked about wanting to read the Koran.  I have never done anything about obtaining a copy of the Koran I have only thought about it.  This morning I hired a driver to take me to the airport; he was telling me how he was fasting because of his religion.  We had a wonderful discussion about the world and religion.  I mentioned to him that I want to read the Koran, so he gave me his copy that he had in the car.  We exchanged phone numbers and he said that I should call him if I have any questions about anything that I read.

I am extremely grateful for having met this gentleman, for our conversation (it gives me hope), and for his copy of the Koran which I began reading as I waited to board my plane.
