How is your sons Ramadan going?
It’s going pretty well, and thank you for asking!
I’m handling this Ramadan much better now that he’s safe in a civilized place with healthy conditions. Ramadan of 2017 was an ungodly nightmare as he was attempting to be faithful to the horrible no food/no water restrictions of Ramadan in the sweltering heat and terrifying conditions of Syria. To his credit, he managed to do it despite my daily begging for him to stop and spare himself.
I hate all religions pretty much equally, but I truly despise Ramadan. What a stupid, hideous, torturous ritual to impose. The idea that any god would expect that from humans absolutely boggles my mind.
My baby boy mistakenly thinks I will eventually join him in following Ramadan. My baby boy is dead wrong.
