...tural differences and environments around the world. Complete universalism cannot be applied in the case of the military. The influence of relativism can undermine human rights, but is acceptable if used for the right reasons. In the matters of safety and national security, relativism can and should be applied to the rights of those sworn to protect. In the issue of displaying religion through traditional garb, civilian peoples should enjoy the right universally, while national security forces and active military should be restricted. Civilians have the privilege and duty to display their culture and religion towards the purpose of obtaining universal acceptance for religious freedom. But before that can happen, in the tense environment of the battlefield, soldiers must show dedication to the people first and restrict religious clothing with the big picture in mind.

- Should Muslim women be required to wear the traditional hijab is a religious debate I was never aware existed, I just always believed it was mandatory to wear the veil and that was that. There are many that say the hijab is a symbol of their religion but they are being challenged by the view that it is a personal choice. The Islam religion has five fundamental requirements: Ramadan fasting, believing that the only God is Allah and that Prophet Mohammed is Allah's messenger, praying five times daily, giving to charity, and making a pilgrimage to Mecca if possible....

- In many religions, the use of garments such as the Jewish yarmulke or the Islamic hijab are not merely worn out of choice, but out of strict ritual or religious obligation. Donning traditional dress is not just seen as religious duty, but ties closely with spiritual practice identity. Widespread use shows that it has become an integral part to the continuity of multiple religious practices. Provided that wearing religious garments is based on manifesting central religious beliefs, to what extent can a State hinder this expression of freedom....

- I lost a day of my life. When I was in grade school, I fell at recess and lost my memory of that day. I could not remember what day it was, or even where I was.

As many time as she told me I could not retain any of the information. I did not even remember going to the hospital to get a CT scan done of my head. The simple fact was that I had a concussion....

- “Is This a Religious Book?” When reading The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis, one may completely overlook the moral of the story. C.S. Lewis’ goal when writing this Christian novel was to appeal to children by “stripping them of their stained glass and Sunday school associations” (Ford). Although Lewis “did not have children of his own” (Walsh), he knew how to make Christianity enchanting. He hoped that “with the passage of time they would realize that Christianity stood there” (Nelson).... [tags: literary, religious and phylosophical analysis]

- "Head Hunters" was a great event, though it's easy to see why this "movie" failed to generate much excitement in its original run. A great photographer Curtis certainly was; a great cinematographer, not so much, even by the standards of that long-gone era. The screenplay, such as it was, is wooden, contrived, and makes insufficient and clumsy use of the rich ethnographic and mythic material available (and of which Curtis was well aware--in fact, the information recrded by him is itself of ethnographic and historical value)....
