A CALL FOR PEACE; AN END TO WAR

Dr. Shaik Ubaid is an American, a New York physician. Dr. Ibaid is a sensitive, caring, compassionate man and a devout Muslim. The following url is to an article published in November 2004 but is as relevant today as it was then.

Only the battles have changed. Wars are much the same at any time, any place. Bombs fall, weapons are fired, cities are destroyed, people die. Today, as in 2004, Arab mothers clutch their children in terror of the horrific events unfolding in their country. American mothers live in fear for the lives and safety of their sons and daughters sent to a war in a foreign country. Husbands and fathers strive to keep their families together and safe. Blood and death, pain and grief, terror and destruction remain the same. Between Arab and American and Israelite, there is no difference in warm red blood, salty tears, and cries of grief and pain. All are members of the human family, and as such, all are brothers and sisters.

Dr. Ubaid wrote this during a dark night of his soul and in it, he echoes the thoughts and prayers of many of us.
