Holocaust, Native American Genocide, Gujarat Massacre

The purpose of this event is education, we hope to learn and acknowledge our failings and make a personal commitment to do our individual share of saying “Never Again”. Our mission is to create awareness of the inhumanity within each one of us and hope to find the solutions.
  • Event:  Holocaust, Genocides of Native Americans and Gujarat Massacre.
  • Theme: Sparks of Hatred and how to extinguish them 
  • Date: Sunday, January 26, 2014 
  • Time: 3:00 PM :  American Indian Genocide Museum
  • Time: 4 PM – 6 PM Full Program
  • Venue: Unity of Dallas
  • Address: 6525 Forest Ln, Dallas, TX 75230 
  • Site: www.HolocaustandGenocides.com 
  • Email: HolocaustandGenocides@gmail.com  

The goal ought to be respecting the otherness of others and accepting the God given uniqueness of each one of us, anything short of that will leave unattended-sparks ready to flare up at short notice with the whiff of oxygen.

There is a shameless cruelty in us, either we shy away or refuse to acknowledge the sufferings of others, worrying that it will devalue our own or somehow it amounts to infidelity to our own cause.  What a shame it is to believe that the victims deserved or asked for it.

We sincerely hope the attendees will walk out with the following understanding:
  • Other people’s suffering is as legitimate as mine;
  •  It is easy to see ourselves as Victims, but we must also see the perpetrator in us;
  •  When we strip the politics out of a conflict, we see hope;
  • We can value others suffering without lessening our own;
  •  The overriding desire to highlight our own blinds us from other’s suffering.
  •  A sense of responsibility for creating a better world is awakened
