Story about raising awareness raises awareness

We had an after-hours speaker on campus this week, and I was surprised to see one of my graduate students carry a canteen into the library auditorium and, after a while, down the whole thing. Then I remembered that she is Muslim and this is Ramadan.

This is the topic of this artice in the Dallas Morning News. The article is one of a pair dealing with struggles faced by Muslim schoolchildren who fast.

One of the articles dealt with raising awareness for the other students. I thought it was neat how the article also served to raise awareness, for a much bigger population.
