Jessica..I just loved how you brought that up in such a wonderful conversation and I guess one of the best things you said was the perspective that we should see the women wearing burka from. They were strong and confident enough to abandon all the pleasure and severe temptation nowadays in wearing jeans,colourful dresses....etc for what they believe in. That could never happen without their strong faith and believe in their religion, and again it brings us back that these women have an EXTRAORDINARY courage and self-confidence to stand for what they believe in :)
Thanks Jessica for the effective video :D :D
