Texas Community Turning to Islam – Part 2 - David

David spent 8 years serving his country in the air force. He is the only white Muslim in his little town on Route 66. He believes his new religion makes him a better American and, far from undermining liberties, gives the individual more rights. He had an arranged marriage and his wife, who was born a Muslim, was amazed by the particularity with which he desires they live their lives. His wife and daughter are dressed in their hijabs (headscarves). He says: "At this point, I couldn't actually even conceive of not being Muslim. I think, it's kind of like the idea of thinking about not breathing"
