I reflect on how much better I can serve my family and community. My fervent prayer is that I can “bottle up” this Ramadan and develop into a better Muslim.
If I can’t be this same “Brother Jesse” beyond this holy month and become a stronger Muslim because of it, then what is my motive? Self-improvement is the key, so as the late musical legend Michael Jackson said, “I’m looking at the man in mirror.” I am in love with the possibilities of being a better me. I know you are too.
Ramadan Mubarak (Blessed Ramadan) to all of the Muslims and non-Muslims striving to successfully complete the 30 days of fasting and reading of the Holy Qur’an. And may we all be blessed to break any bad habits we have to enjoy the blessings of overcoming them.
PS: I haven’t had a “peppermint fast” since ’97. (smile)
