Everday Hero: Moezeldin Elmostafa

Readers Digest honors Moezeldin Elmostafa, the cab driver who risked much simply to tell the truth, as one of its everyday heroes of the year:

The story of Mr. Elmostafa is heartwarming and remarkable indeed, and Duke Students for an Ethical Duke would like to explore the possibility of bringing him to campus to share his life experiences.

425What Mr. Elmostafa did sounds very courageous if this just happened to a regular blue collar worker that the DPD wanted to browbeat and force him to recant his testimony.

But can you imagine how horrifying it would be to any of use if we were immigrants and not yet a US citizen? What if INS got involved and it put a road block to staying in the US or becoming a citizen?

I'm so glad that his love for America was not weakened by criminals posing as law enforcement officers. I say congratulations on passing the citizenship test, Mr. Elmustafa, fellow American.
