My name is Katerina Caristan and I am Muslim. I have lived in USA for the past 19 years.
I was born in in Czech Republic, country that was under communist regime. Religion was never something to be talked about and if you were religious you were “different”. My parents and my older sister are Catholics. I was never baptized. I loved visiting the churches, not for the message but simply for the atmosphere you felt once inside. The coldness of the stone walls, and the smell of the potpourri.
