My Views on Religion
For me, religion is an "to each his own" thing. I hang out with people of all different religions, and I enjoy learning from each one. What everyone has in common is a desire to have a positive life doing what he or she thinks is right. It's really that simple for me.
I have recently met a lot of people who are from the Muslim faith. The teachers, administrators, and students at the school I work are mostly of this religion. It was intimidating at first because I was actually in the minority, which is something I haven't experienced too many times in life. The people are some of the most supportive I've ever met. I am looking forward to learning more about their religion and culture.
For awhile I was a practicing Christian, but I no longer put myself in that group. Especially after having the experiences of the last couple of months, I can't say I believe one religion to be completely right. I believe there is something out there bigger than me, but I can't define that. For now I will focus on bringing light into the lives of those around me. In this way, we are all alike anyway, so it works.
