Theres something about being lost In a crowd. Being part of a river that flows side by side. The crashing of shopping bags and arms as you Wade your way through. Every wave eager to get to the estuary. Walking on broadway is like this everyday.

Last week my sister called. She has been studying abroad since summer began, so naturally I was thrilled to hear from her. After hearing how she was, I asked about her new home. With her living in a Muslim country, I felt assured that everything would be fine. For that reason, what she described next was a complete shock. She began to describe a place where a girl can hardly leave her house...
