ÒMy offering is an examination of the ethereal connection formed between people out of collective loneliness. For me, this loneliness stemmed from fasting alone for Ramadan during a global pandemic and mourning the loss of a dear friend. For others, there are many other reasons. There is a common experience in this isolation that connects us. I hope to make this connection easier to see and maybe help someone with their isolation.Ó by Maher Akremi, Literary Arts, USA / Washington, DC, Day 53 / September 3, 2020.
