Ran across this pic on Yahoo

Caption read; Abdul Kayum flashes a thumbs-up as he drives his damaged minivan on the road near the airport in Kandahar, Afghanistan, Thursday, Dec. 13, 2001. Kayum said he had stopped on the road linking Herat to Kandahar two weeks ago to pray, when his minivan was hit by an airstrike. Thanking God, he started his minivan, which still worked, and resumed his journey.(AP Photo/Jerome Delay)

And some Americans wonder why they are hated by some Arabs? I would be rather cranky if somebody dropped a bomb on my car as well :hammer: :hammer: :hammer:

Cranky is to put it mildly. LOL

I think that pic & caption say something about the power of prayer too:thumb:
