The Misfortune of September 11, 2001, disturbed the American world. Families were torn apart; blameless lives were lost by the thousand. It is a day that will stand in infamy for the American people. Nevertheless, it is so easy to forget that 9/11 did not only affect Christian Americans; it also significantly changed the lives of Muslim Americans. The Pain Caused by 9/11 presents a well-researched look at the lives of Muslim Americans, before and after the disaster of 9/11. Based on numerous surveys, author Wazhma Khalili has come to realize Muslim-Americans do feel greatly discriminated against since that day especially throughout the 2008 presidential election. On Election Day, many Muslim Americans felt unfriendliness from their neighbors when they struggled to vote in person. Not withstanding this resentment, though, voting continued, as many Muslim Americans trusted that Barack Obama would be the first president to address the issue of race and work toward national equivalence. At its simplest, The Pain Caused by 9/11 is about overcoming hate in a modern world often distraught with anger and racial profiling.
