These awesome stories are ripe with inspiration and important information. Many thanks to Brad at Writing to Freedom.
This week Awesome Stories brings you inspiration, understanding Muslim, secular sabbath, and the love of bees.

Mansoor Shams is a 34-year-old retired U.S. Marine who wants to help people understand the Muslim faith.
