beacon of hope


Darkness sets and you can't find your way. In the distance, a shining light guides you home. Hope returns with each step you take.

This is the minaret of the National Mosque. Really quite beautiful at night with it's gradient blue-tiled roof and wall-less structure. Superficial perhaps but Islam is a beautiful religion and this mosque helps strengthen that fact. All religions are beautiful if studied carefully. In the wrong hands...well, you know what happens.

Have a great weekend.

The minaret is really stunning up close.

And thanks for the comments. Religion is such a sensitive topic. In this day and age, after history's lessons, it's getting worse. Tolerance just isn't word in many people's vocabulary. Pity.
