To live in a peaceful world should be our right. Yet, everyday many die from conflicts and war. To create peaceful tomorrows seems insurmountable yet we must start somewhere.
The more we talk about peace, the more we bring conscious alternatives and provide tools to help the world reduce its chaos. Since 9/11, a group of concerned citizens, who lost their loved ones in one of the most heinous attacks on humanity have worked tirelessly to bridge the gaps of cultural misunderstandings and to spread their message of peace. As the thirteenth anniversary of September 11, 2001 looms September 11, Families for peaceful Tomorrows bring this conversation, that should constantly be at the forefront of our collective efforts, to our community.
The topics to be discussed are gun violence and Islamophobia. I am sure you will agree that our indisputable gun violence problem has reached epidemic proportions and is a growing concern in the United States. Firearm-related homicides claims too many lives, leaves too many grieving and erodes our belief that a peaceful world is possible. Religious intolerance has been at the root of many misunderstandings and much bloodshed the world over. The discussion on Islamophobia will be an example of religious tolerance. On hand will be distinguished panelist and subject matter experts to including Rev Matt Crebbin, who led Newtons memorial service for the tragic gun violence in Newton, Connecticut, powerhouse MSNBC attorney Lisa Bloom, community activists Jackie Rowe, Chet Whye and Religious leaders among others to inform and educate.
