Can forgiveness create peace in our lives, and the lives of our families, community, country and world? Azim Khamisa says, "Yes." In this time of heightened racial and cultural tensions, this conversation is more pertinent than ever. Azim lost his son to senseless violence and, rather than lose himself in grief or turn to vengeance, committed himself to teaching nonviolence to children and communities.
Azim Khamisa is an inspiration. Hailed by dignitaries such as the Dalai Lama, Former President Bill Clinton and Al Gore, Azim carries his inspirational message of forgiveness, peace and hope into a world in desperate need of each. Following the loss of his only son Tariq in 1995 to a senseless, gang-related murder, Azim chose the path of forgiveness and compassion rather than revenge and bitterness, and this amazing choice led to the establishment of the Tariq Khamisa Foundation and the subsequent forgiveness movement which has reached millions. Azim is also an international speaker and award winning author. For more information visit azimkhamisa.com.
