On October 21, 2001, The Boston Globe published a piece by Christina Safiya Tobias-Nahi, an American Muslim and civil rights advocate. She writes, "As parents, students, workers, and neighbors, we have all been touched. We linger less, we laugh less. As I mourn for the innocent killed in my homeland, I equally mourn for the new innocents being killed overseas. I wonder how much further my constitutional civil liberties, as an American, and as a Muslim, will be reduced, under the mantle of what are designed to be protective measures."
