I have something to say.....

I want to say this. It may come out a mish mash of words but I hope the point is there.

There are people out there who are !@#$% idiots.

From a certain one down in Florida who wants his 15 minutes of fame. To men and women around the world who kill in the name of god. People who think they are better then everyone else because of __________ (fill in the blank) We are all humans. Regardless of who we love, worship, eat, or what ever.

You see my best friend who is like a sister to me is from Eygpt. She is Muslim. She covers her hair because she wants too. We have had many discussions about how stupid the world is. Yesterday we sat together watching our children play together worried about the world.

Then she tells me that some one where she works told her that she was stupid because she covers her hair. That because she covers her hair she is going to bring bad attention to herself. She was upset I could tell but she said she just let it go. She thought this woman was her friend.

I am raising my children to see people for who they are, not what they do. It just amazes me that in this day and age we as a race can not get over that we are all the same.

I am not religious at all but I do know this. No matter what religion is practice, Love thy Neighbor and No killing seem to be on the top. Remember WWJD? I liked it. Not because of the whole Jesus thing but because it made people think for a second.

I know I am rambling, It just really upsets me that my friend who is one of the most generous and loving person on this planet is being harassed because she wears a scarf on her head.

Yours is a heartfelt ramble. I work with Sikhs, Muslims, and Hindus and find them much nicer than the so-called Christians. If we turn to hate, the terrorists win.

I am with you, Sister. Well said. We watched the CBS Sunday Morning Show this morning...I asked Bruce if he thought we could be moving toward another holicaust. I wasn'y around when our fathers put the Japanese in prison camps in this country, but the idiots out there are sure making it sound like that is what they want to do again.

Daughter, you did not ramble, you said what a lot of WOMEN think and practice. Your two other responses sound like wonderful women too, just like you. Keep your faith in what you believe so your kids, my grandkids, will hopefully take after you in their beliefs. love you, mom

Your ramble is one I agree with so much. The Preacher you are mentioning lives near to me in Florida. I am so disgusted that he has been in the media circus getting fame for something so horrible. The media has been camped out in the field of his church feeding his stupidity. It makes me ill.

Your friendship sounds lovely , one to be treasured. Hopefully our children will grow up with love and respect for others, yours seem to be already on their way.

I'm with you!!!! There is just too much hate in the world right now! I think our own extremists are far more dangerous than those from other countries. Ours have the power of Rupert Murdoch behind them.
