  • Religion's power to unite and divide and how we go beyond it. 
  • The idea that the more time you spend with people that are different than you, the better. 
  • How social media plays a role in the Muslim/Non-Muslim relationship in America. 
  • Differentiating your personal beliefs religion/politics from what we see on TV.
  • American society vs. American foreign policy
  • How religion and logic coexist
