Dr. Amarjit Singh delivered a powerful key note address that caused us to seriously consider taking a few actions. Mr. Hasan Mahmud shared about the Bangladesh Genocide of 1971, Dr. Petra Weldes talked about Stereotyping and its effects on the societies, Shah Alam Siddiqi brought up the genocides of the Urdu speaking Muslims in Bangladesh, and Kelly Obazee reflected on current massacres around the world. Mike Ghouse talked about standing up for others and starts thinking about others suffering and move away from being me, me and me, and he shared the personal story of bringing a closure on Holocaust. Dr. Harbans Lal’s message about Sikhs, forgiveness and justice was powerful.
I urge people of all faiths, excluding none to start being a part of others for a better tomorrow, and each one of us, reading this, and those involved in this need to work on it.
