Like most I was shocked and saddened when 9/11 happened. I was playing with my 3 year old daughter and while searching for Treehouse discovered all
channels tuned live to New York. Horrible, still to this day tear up thinking about that time.
Anyway, have a lot of Middle eastern friends, including some Greeks as well. These are not casual relationships. We've all known each other for years
through various not so legal dealings so there is a lot of trust, free to vent and say things that normally you wouldn't put out there, which is where
I was shocked one day on 9/11.
All of them, some Iranian, Leb's, Syrians and couple Greeks, all born elsewhere and at some point immigrated here to Canada said the same thing when

here and having a good life in this country why all this hatred to America, I was just floored when they spoke out like they did, thought I knew them
