What a strong young lady. I know I couldn't do this. I really admire her.
That is one cool Sikh. I am impressed.
Now if everyone could respect each other's differences in this life,
including and especiallytheir religion.Most of these articles would
have half of the remarks they normally do and it would all berespectful
and positive.What a nice thought.Thanks for a perfect example on how
to react, respond and ultimately behave.

"When I die, no one is going to remember what I looked like, heck, my kids
will forget my voice, and slowly, all physical memory will fade away." -
Balpreet Kaur200 years ago, that statement would have been true for
the average person; however, with the advent of modern technology, people 200
years from now will know exactly what we looked liked and even what our voices
sounded like.By the way, that is not a criticism of your looks or
beliefs, merely an observation of the times we live in.
Thank you for the insight into your faith. Your conviction, and the peace it
brings you, is inspiring.
@uteits truly sad that you feel the need to use the thread of such a
positive story to spread such negativity. I would suggest maybe it is time to
take a step back from the election and try to keep it all in perspective. this
young lady is a great example for us all and frankly so is the young man that
stood up took responsibility for his actions and apologized. We would all do
well to remember to pause before speaking and posting.
She ought to consider electrolysis. This is not a criticism or ridicule but a
kindly suggestion. Religion has its place, but it is a wise person who
doesn't take it to extremes or let it rule their life.
cjb, there is more at work here than the common logic of what comprises a
worthwhile life. She obviously does not feel burdened by her religious beliefs -
they bring her joy meaning. Your definition of extremes is very subjective, and
you might remember that not everyone sees things as you do. In our
Utah culture there are many religious practices that the majority of the world
sees as irrational: pre-marital abstinence, eschewing coffee, spending three
hours in church each Sunday, dropping everything to go live elsewhere in a
deprived economic situation and provide service for two years, etc. I don't
know anything about you, but everything I just mentioned is a portion of my
normal life. On the other hands, I have some very close friends that
reject the entire idea of God and all that goes with it. We understand one
another's point of view and beliefs and accept them. In fact, I try to
follow the recommendation of Depak Chopra, "I relinquish the need to defend
my point of view or to convince others of it."Finally, she does
not want electrolysis, and suggesting it demonstrates a lack of respect for her.
@ cjb: "She ought to consider electrolysis. This is not a criticism or
ridicule but a kindly suggestion. Religion has its place, but it is a wise
person who doesn't take it to extremes or let it rule their life."Why? So she meets your standard of beauty? The Creator gave her that
body - why should she create the sacrilege of changing it just so other people
are comfortable?Would you tell a Mormon to get a tattoo? Should
Pentecostal women be forced to cut their hair?She is not being
"extreme" - she is living her beliefs. And if that makes you
uncomfortable, that is a problem you have.
