Jaime Derman's cross
What gets to me about this story is that her school rules are the same school rules my daughter has at her Christian school. The rule is that you can wear no visible jewelry whatsoever! Unless of course it is not visible, so some girls or boys can wear a longer chain so it doesn't show.
I wonder why Jaime Derman does not just wear a longer chain. After all, Jesus does teach us to obey law and rules right? She should be obeying her school rules, and make the necklace less visible. In the picture I saw of her, it almost looked like a choker.
I do know that items of sentimental value are important and so is ones faith, and I do admire her stand for her love of Christ, that is so strong, it's great to see. However, the chain should not be visible over her uniform.
