Dammam, Saudi Arabia

On 9/11 I went walking down the street in my neighborhood in Saudi Arabia. The woman, two doors, down always wore a full veil when I saw her. On her door, she had put up a wooden cutout that she had bought in the US of a mother duck leading ducklings. It was her symbols of being a mother to her children. Many homes in Utah are decorated with similar artwork. It was a common value that she shared with mothers all over the world. I thought to myself that I didn't know what would happen in the world because of what has happend with the World Trade Center, but I would remember this symbol and the common value that this Moslem woman had with women throughout the world.
