Mariam, age 18, a Christian in Egypt, sent the following message to children in the United States.
“Christians in Egypt are not treated equally with Muslims. Also, girls are considered less than boys in everything. I want to tell American kids to thank God that you are not bound by all the things we’re bound with in our country. You’re free to be whatever you want to be.”

Shafgat and Shaguftah have five children, ages 5 to 13. But they were separated from their children last summer after Shafgat and Shaguftah were arrested.
A Muslim, Muhammad Hussain, reported the couple to the police after he received offensive text messages on his cell phone. Hussain said the messages were “blasphemous,” and that they came from Shaguftah’s cell phone number.
