We have more to learn with respect to coming together as a community, managing (and leveraging) our differences, uniting, institution building, relying on endowments rather than brute-force-fundraising, and more.
This is why it is very exciting to be a Muslim activist these days: every day, you are laying the foundation for many things to come.
