Something I often remembered was someone on this board who was promoting their idea of polygamy. I remembered how persons who did not share that view were considered to be disrespecting our ancestors and how belligerent the reasonings became.
I saw this one woman who stood up to that person and tried to caution her about her conduct and the fact that people were entitled to different interpretations and practices.
I was busy on another project at the time but I remembered taking time to watch how this woman made a valid point and how the other poster was trying to ridicule her for daring to point out that her conduct was bad.
I said to my self, if this woman can be true in conduct towards others whose view may differ to her own she might indeed be a special one as she demonstrated in that one moment courage and integrity in dealing with someone else over views that were different to her own.
I remembered that moment quite clearly.
