Comment on Progressive but Muslim nonetheless by Yarí Elisa http://coveringreligion.org/2011/04/progressive-but-muslim-nonetheless/#comment-2083 Yarí Elisa Thu, 14 Apr 2011 13:38:39 +0000 http://coveringreligion.org/?p=1223#comment-2083 I usually don't write any comments, but I liked your post a lot. It is not only "on target", but also beautiful. I think that, sometimes, we question and run away from the things we believe are antiquated or, simply, just plain wrong. Nevertheless, there's always that instant —when we find an old photo, when we walk to a certain place, when we meet a person, etc— that makes one realize that, for better or worse, that idea, belief or institution, even though one questioned it, or ran away from it, or don't agree with, is part of one's identity. A humbling, yet powerful moment. I usually don’t write any comments, but I liked your post a lot. It is not only “on target”, but also beautiful.

I am a problem solver at heart - I feel I can't rest until there is peace in that part of the world - in all parts of the world really. "The inconsistencies are the stories." I hope our paths cross again in person and you can tell the stories and help me find peace in the inconsistencies. much love Sumit - beautifully written. Oh and I too was deeply touched by Anne Frank, it was from her I learned the power of the simple action of writing things down. Wow- this may have just helped me find motivation to work on this paper. Thank you for writing. The more I study the situation in the Middle East, I too am more perplexed.

Comment on Lesson in the ashes of books burned by Jules Bosch http://coveringreligion.org/2011/04/lesson-in-the-ashes-of-books-burned/#comment-1860 Jules Bosch Mon, 11 Apr 2011 22:46:39 +0000 http://coveringreligion.org/?p=1162#comment-1860 Heather, I thoroughly enjoyed your "Lesson" story. Like you, if I visit a museum or gallery I have to look in every nook and cranny. If a photograph has a caption, I must read it, word-for-word, sometimes to the exasperation of those with me. If I see something that I find confusing, I find someone to explain it to me, always first apologizing for being “thick.” I have only ever been in western Europe, never the east. But, my fascination with the History Channel’s stories of the Great War, and then its successor, WWII, lead me to believe I would enjoy the travels you have already experienced. Please be sure I am included on the distribution list for any and al of your future “stories.” Jules Heather,
