I Love This Story!

Recommended Posts

To me, it symbolizes so much about the US and its melting pot. Here you have a bunch of people who love the country they immigrated to and want to serve it, and have now been able to reach a compromise where they don't feel they have to abandon their religious tenets to do so, while the NYPD at the same time is able to maintain a suitably uniform (excuse the pun) look. I'm sure finding a middle ground is not actually an option in all cases (obviously a Muslim woman insisting on wearing full hijab couldn't do it, then again such a woman probably wouldn't want to join the NYPD either) but it's encouraging to see this happening where it's possible. I truly believe that the more religions and cultures can assimilate into the melting pot, the more people understand each other and are able to get along.
