    Welcome! The wonderful thing about the World Wide Web today is that we can all talk to each other, one on one. And not just relate through politicians.

    Almost everyone one of us in this country is descended from people who came from another country. Sometimes they were allowed in easily. Many times there were prejudices.

    Nearly every major group here (Hispanic, Irish, Jewish, Eastern European, Chinese, Japanese, Middle Eastern, Nordic, African, etc.) has gone through times of prejudices against them. Times when fears created limits on who has been allowed in, who could stay, etc.. Then time passes and the fears turn elsewhere. It seems to be part of the process.

    That probably doesn't help your frustrations of not being allowed here, but please know that you aren't alone. And that Middle Easterners are not the first group that have been feared or treated unfairly.

    So yes please share with us your thoughts and feelings and what it's like to study nursing where you are. Looking forward to hearing from you SaudiNurse. And congratulations on such good English! kavi :spin:

    very welcome and so glad to see you venturing into this

    it is truly a small world, and it is sad that so much devastation and tragedy keeps the world apart from each other

    may you find peace and much success with your studies.......

    may this world one day find peace and we all learn to get along on a global level...........

    for me, I am thankful that people are people and we are all connected........
