The Golden Rule in action in the Middle East
Originally appeared on spirituality.com
I grew up on a Wisconsin farm, so I'm not sure why I became interested in the Middle East. But by the time I was in college, I was interested enough to want to learn Arabic, to study the region’s intricate cultural, religious, and political history, and to go there to meet people and learn about their lives.
I earned a master’s degree in Middle East studies, worked as an intern in the Cairo bureau of a major US news organization, and later traveled throughout the Middle East as a journalist.
