Naomi Shihab Nye
Naomi Shahib Nye, for one.  And several others.  Sometimes good begets good.

This is a link to a poem by Ms. Nye, an American citizen by birth, whose father is Palestinian.  The poem concerns an encounter with an elderly Palestinian woman -- in traditional Palestinian [read "Arabic"] garb -- travelling through an American airport, by herself.

Despite our fears and anxieties, the forces of goodness can be powerful.
