Day 6 - Maria Romero: “The Most Difficult Ramadan”
Revealing Ramadan: 30 Days, 30 Voices [mp3, 3:06]
by Trent Gilliss, senior editor
On this sixth day of Ramadan, we hear from Maria Romero, a Mexican-American lawyer living with her daughter in Seattle. She grew up Roman Catholic and married an Arab Muslim man. Only after their divorce did she convert to Islam. The Ramadan story she tells is one of pain and fortitude, one of isolation and new community.
