Is it important for you to wear a visible religious symbol?

    No, I do not follow a specific world faith – and therefore have no symbols to promote – though I do have an OM neckalace I wear at times

    I do not but I certainly respect those who do. I hope my conduct tells those around me what I believe more than anything I would wear.

    Not really, I do wear prayer beads from time to time, either on my wrist or around my neck.

    I wear the hijab and I don’t really see it as something outside of me. It’s just part of who I am. I don’t really think that others are affected by it. I wear it because I feel that I am obeying God and because I love God, I want to do that which he loves. There was a time where I wasn’t wearing it properly and then it had to do with how close I felt to God. I sometimes don’t understand what the fuss is about when people talk about the hijab. If one is hot, it’s a feeling and a person in that case would dress a praticular way and we don’t think anything of that! Likewise I feel like wearing a hijab :)

    I often wear a medal with Mary the Mother of God around my neck, out of reverence for her role in Jesus Christ coming to us.
