      Britain is a complex country with a huge and diverse mix of religious, social, ethnic, economic (and many other categories!) backgrounds…

      Add to that the demands of society (as outlined and promoted by the media) that people try to conform: to look ‘good’, to look ‘normal’, to be ‘beautiful’ and we can find that being ourselves in the public space a very hard thing indeed.

      Here is one amazing response from a strong and committed young Sikh woman who was ridiculed by strangers for having facial hair and for wearing a turban.

      Her written response to the taunting is short and powerful. And it speaks for itself, for her and for her faith in a God that values all people equally… this could be in interesting talking point for students on a number of levels…

      For a one page summary of her letter (which went viral on Facebook in August 2014) you can read:
