stars and/or stripes forever
the star i chose for this week is a symbol of one of those truths we hold to be self-evident; one of those rights that i, as many other americans, take for granted: our right of religious freedom.
here i am in my favorite tee shirt (the purchase of which was copied from not one, but two, of my sisters.) in addition to the star of David, there are six other religious symbols displayed in harmony. i'm sad to say that when i purchased this shirt, i didn't know what all of them were! (do you?)
i grew up in New York and Maryland, two places that are much more religiously diverse than the southeastern coast where i now reside. and certainly, the blogosphere has become a place where i have been able to explore and learn even more about my friends and their faiths. and while i know much about my own, and still little about all of the others, i love that i live in a country where it is safe to explore, lurk and learn from so many. do you identify with one of these symbols?
of course, i couldn't resist doing the stripes, too, and i must nod to that other right that i hold so dear:
the right to perform shamelessly in local community theatre productions!!
