The War Is Left Behind, But Not The Horrors Of War

DALLAS (AP) - About 10,000 Iraqis have left their strife-torn native homeland behind to resettle in North Texas. Though still haunted by the murders and violence they left behind, they have found peace and hope in their new homeland.

However, The Dallas Morning News reports that news that U.S. troops are leaving Iraq brings renewed worries for those left behind.

Rasmiya AlGhrawi still dresses in the traditional black abaya appropriate to an Iraqi woman of 69 years. Praying inside an unmarked mosque in a group of Dallas apartments, she says "America must be safe and peaceful."

But she still mourns for the two daughters who worked as support staff for the U.S.-led military coalition until both were murdered near their home - shot as collaborators with foreign troops.
