  11. Dear Eboo,
    I don’t know if you remember me but we met at the United Religions Initiative held at Stanford University in summer 1997 if I am correct. My name is Ghazala Munir and I live in Grand Rapids, Michigan. I remember having long conversations with you about the future of Muslim youth in North America. I would like to extend my heartiest congratulations to you and wish you the very best in your sincere efforts to bring harmony among religions. I commend President Obama for his selection! We are actively pursuing Interfaith Relations here in West Michigan. There are several organizations doing some kind of interfaith work. If there is anything we could do to help you in any way, please feel free to call upon us. Is it possible to bring you here as a guest speaker? We would be honored if you accept. Please notify me via email about how to get in touch with you.

    Sincere Regards,
