    What beautiful mosques these are. I had no idea there were so many styles of architecture for these wonderful national treasures–each one different in style but all pointing to God. The people of Kazakhstan should be very proud of these over-whelming creations. It is good that we build beautiful places whose spires point the way… up. For God is there, and we should remind ourselves to give thanks to God for the beauty he gives us.

    …. one adjunct comment to the above: Would that all peoples learned about the beautiful things other cultures create, each different one from another. It is better to focus on the ineffable good as well as dwell on each others darker natures.

    Besides, are not most men decent, honorable, and do their best, even when to do so is exceedingly difficult. All of us suffer fools in our lives. All of us everywhere know of those who take advantage of others and live for greed. And we know those who walk in the path of righteousness, and they inspire us. And we know a godly man from his heart, not just empty words.
