In this post-September 11th decade, the idea of "us versus them", as it was verbalized by American leaders, left an unsettling atmosphere for many Americans. But not everyone believed the divisive rhetoric.
Moin Khan is a Pakistani-American who decided to take things into his own hands and show the world an image of the goodness of the human spirit. He decided to take a motorbike journey from San Francisco to Lahore, Pakistan to meet ordinary people along the way -- showing them another side of Pakistan and seeing for himself another side of others. He spoke with New America Now Host Shirin Sadeghi having just reached his 4,000 mile mark in Iowa.
