I answer questions and I see responses; so naturally I look at profiles from time to time. I want to know why I am absolutely scared of Arabic people???? I have no reason to be, other than pure fear of terrorism, which for some reason I associate with them and have since 9/11. How can I get over this fear, and why am I grouping them in such a way, that they are all evil??? I am not a racist, but this really makes me feel like one and I just want to get over that fear!!!!!

ooo ooo I have a sweet story. In short we had no money for groceries, so I had a week long garage sale to make enough daily (until payday) to buy food, this happened a year after 9/11. And who realized after a few days what I was doing? My Muslim neighbors, they went out and bought food for me and my family. I just wanted to pass that on. What beautiful people. People are people, we are all born with "good" seeds and "bad" seeds, which ones get watered in on an individual basis, not a collective one :)

Afraid and fearful?! LOL I think you are courageous that you had the good common sense and a big heart to shine light on your fear of Arabic people :) All the other ladies gave great advice so I'll just encourage you with happy-love-fluffy stuff. It is beautiful that you can look at your fear, it will start to go away.
