The difference between Arabic and English

I should not be writing this to you. You should not be reading this. I should not want to write to you in English; I should be writing in Arabic. I am writing in your language, when I should be writing in mine.

In Arabic, morals and values come naturally. The Arabic voice is a voice of principle and emotion. The English voice is a voice of self-fulfillment and individual experience.

Still, my Arabic is inside my English. You can find it in all those "should"s of my first paragraph.
