A lot of innocent people will suffer. I have some wonderful friends who are Lebonese (American born) and Catholics, who's son is in the FBI, yet I've already heard people ranting about them being "some of them!" because they are dark complected and their noses are large. It breaks my heart and makes me angry.
We are all upset right now, but we need to channel our anger into something productive and not do any MORE harm to our country and countrymen than has already been done. Some of us lived through the "Cold War" and the McCarthy Era and watched people being accused of being "Communist" without reason or proof. It wasn't right then and it isn't right now.
Right now all we can do is pray for the right answers and hope our country stays united and we can wipe out this terror we all feel.
God Bless America
