This was a very moving and powerful presentation of their plight for religious freedom. It made me appreciate America; knowing I could worship whomever or whatever I choose. I have plenty food to eat, clothes to wear and an adequate roof over my head for varying weather conditions and a host of educational facilities in which to choose from according to my individual interests. This brought gratitude for life's simplicities and made me realize how much I take for granted.
