2010 Brass Crescent Awards
As Salaamu Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatu and Greetings of Peace:
As I was going through the blogs and sites on my feed, I noticed that quite a few of them were talking about the 2010 Brass Crescent Awards.
So, I schlepped over there to see who had been nominated.
Imagine my SURPRISE as I discovered that one of my posts had been nominated in the category, "Best Post or Series," which is an award for a "single post or group of posts in the Islamsphere" that was the "most original and important above all the others."
The piece that got nominated is "Somebody's Always 'It' in America." It addresses some of America's attitudes towards minorities, especially post World War II from my personal perspective.
Subhan'Allah! I am truly honored and humbled. Even if I don't win the actual award, I am still a winner . Jazaka Allahu Khayrn to everyone who made this happiness possible for me.
So get on over there and vote - for me, if you want, but more importantly, for all of the great nominees! And VERY IMPORTANT - once you vote, they will send a confirmation email to you. If you don't confirm your vote, it won't count.
Polls close end of Friday, November 19.
