Just Thoughts

The Muslim and the Jew by b. Malin

She the Jew, was employed by him the Muslim, for ten long years....before she said adieu.... He the Muslim, the doctor, had many points of view. She, the office manager, and he the doctor, made up a party of two, adored by the patients, this Muslim and Jew.

He reminded her of her father, a slight man, with glasses, who had been dead many years. She reminded him of the Jew he dated so many years ago, but knew he could not marry. Times were different then for the Muslim and the Jew.

They talked all the time, many topics to discuss. They both held fast to their beliefs. He told her he had a "Jewish wet nurse" up till the age of three. " No way she'd say," remembering that she had been bottle fed, and on a cup by one.

Their working relationship went well until 9/11.....then it became tense....things were said, more by she, than he. She lost a friend, who's remains would never be found. He worried about his loved ones living so close to those grounds, and the site....and all the contamination. She wanted to see him say he was sorry for the pain and suffering. Things were different now between this Muslin and this Jew....and so eventually she bid him. adieu. But I think deep down in each of their hearts, there was a place for this Muslim, and this Jew.

This is dedicated to all those families and friends who lost loved one's on 9/11. Hey New York, what are you thinking? To allow a "Mosque" to be built near ground zero. The souls of the dead will haunt you forever! Please let them rest in Peace.

I think this is a very intense and well written piece

Thank you so much. My other thoughts on what should be built on this site, would be a "Memorial building" for the 9/11 victims. On display could be things about them, their lives, their dreams.....Pictures of them, when they were happy, and alive. Family and friends, and loved ones would have a place to go, to heal.

I would just like to add, that I will be dedicating a Hub to my friend Linda for 9/ll. Look for it soon.
