This is not the world that we grew up in

Dear George:

Recently my husband and I were on a road trip and in the early morning hours we stopped at a rest stop for a short break. This was a regular state operated rest stop with parking for all types of vehicles. Being in a SUV we of course parked in front and went in. Upon returning we saw in front of the rest stop two long bed open trucks parked right in front. There weren't many cars around that early in the am. The two vehicle drivers were obviously foreign (Muslim) people. They were poorly dressed and seemed to be agitated that we were watching them. One of the drivers watched while his partner took his prayer blanket from his truck and knelt and said his morning prayers. The trucks were rough looking and were parked right in front of the rest stop which is most unusual. They kept watching us as we did a few stretches and got into our car. We did not have a car phone to report this and did not really have anything concrete to report except that it was a little unsettling. This is not the world that we grew up in. It seems that everything has changed and is a little scarry now.
