in response to reader comment: Successful Integration

Submitted by miri schwartz (United States), Mar 28, 2013 at 11:09

My children go to schools that do not speak english...they speak hebrew or yiddish..english is second.Although I agree speaking english is important, I think living in America we should be allowed to choose how we teach our children. Western clothes? Why does that matter? why does my long skirts and covered hair offend you? Everyone has their own personal path to God.If someone feels dressing a certain way brings them closer its their right,their choice. If a "Goth" girl goes around in all black with piercings all over and tattoos is that "western style?" its more taking after some african cultures that this is considered beauty than Western. I live in America...I want to have freedom. My whole town practically stands still on shabbat..should that be abolished? Why would MY prayer bother you?You arent being forced to do anything. you might choose another city to shop in on saturday but what else is the issue??OHH... maybe all that only matters if I would be muslim. or maybe its religion in general you have and issue with. It takes all types of people to make america what it is. all cultures all religions and Im thrilled to have this freedom.i wont tolerate anyone trying to take it from me and make me live like im in communist russia.
