Who was Cassandra?


  • In the Iliad, she is described as the loveliest of the daughters of Priam (King of Troy), and gifted with prophecy. The god Apollo loved her, but she spurned him. As a punishment, he decreed that no one would ever believe her. So when she told her fellow Trojans that the Greeks were hiding inside the wooden horse...well, you know what happened.

I must confess that I feel uncomfortable when I see someone wearing a burkha, because we pick up so much from the eyes and the rest of the face when we talk. Beyond that, I see no reason at all why we should hide our religious affiliations if we have any. We are able to identify ourselves on all other grounds, including politics and sexuality. Why not religion? Whatever happened to 'Vive la Difference'?

I love these photos.
