Tell Me a Secret

Dear Khalid,

I am a Grandmother in California. I read your blog regularly, as well as River's and Zayed's (--- well when he was writing, I did) I am so heartsick over the anguish you and your countrymen are suffering. I just want you to know that MANY of us Americans really ARE good and compassionate people, and that we can love our country and still hate what the Bush Administration is doing in OUR name - doing to us and to all of you, and Afghanistan, and wherever else in the World the Bush people are meddling and interfering. MANY of us are very much afraid of what they are doing to our freedom, too.
He and his henchmen call us "unpatriotic" because we OPPOSE his methods of suppression and his Lies and Deceit which only causes more and more people around the world to hate our beloved country, and all of us....

Khalid, America has always been a REFUGE and a HAVEN for all the people's of the world who were tyranized and oppressed and crushed. America was always respected and admired ---- and those of us who can comprehend what has been happening are heartbroken to see and hear people (whom we consider as friends and brothers and sisters) speaking and acting with hatred toward us. I have cried over Zaydun, and over so many poor little Iraqi children, all the dead and injured and terrified little children. I cry over the mothers and fathers who are unable to keep their precious children safe, and the orphans who don't deserve any of this... for all the innocent victims, and for our sons and daughters who have been so misled into believing they were "protecting" their country... and for the ones who HAD to go to Bush's war even while they didn't believe in it. And the dear little girl who is a deaf-mute and lost her leg and all her sisters and brothers and parents. How unspeakably hideous it all is!

There really are very, very many of us, Khalid, who are ashamed and apologetic about the anguish Bush & Blair have brought down on your country. We love our sons and daughters and we know that YOUR sons and daughters and your INNOCENT victims are every bit as precious.... and as a loving grandmother, I grieve for them ALL equally.

I hope you can believe that the men who have put Bush in Power (he wasn't elected democratically, but appointed, the first time in the history of the United States) - they are the evil ones, and we will do all we can to elect them all out of OUR government but it is very frightening for us, too... Americans don't know much about a tryanical leader, and there are still a great many of us who both don't understand and don't even believe what is happening here.

In this marvelous age, when we can put men on the moon --- and even bring them back, exactly where we want them to land! --- there should be NO wars!

The International Community should be preventing ALL countries from committing warfare. It would make so much more sence if we assisted nations with developing clean water, safe air, better education; if we developed cures for aids and cancers and all the dreadful diseases; if we provided education and care for the elderly; if we developed fuels from manure and beets and soybeans; and if we used the oceans currents to produce electrical power... we would spend much less than the cost of WAR!!!

There will always be some mean-spirited, vicious, greedy people. There will always be those who are obsessed with power. We realize that's just a sad fact of Life. But we - all of us ordinary people - need to do all we possibly can to STOP their hatred and greed from spreading their poison among us!

Please hold this in your heart and try not to grow bitter against all of us...
Let's TRY to make a better world, as difficult as that is right now.

Love and sorrow,
mary-ann
