Fighting Violence with Forgiveness

February 1, 2007

It seems like violence is everywhere today. But what do you do when senseless violence takes the life of someone you love? It happened to Azim Khamisa (kah-MEE-sah). In 1995 his 20-year-old son Tariq was murdered by a 14-year-old gang member while delivering pizzas. Khamisa found a path to forgiveness of his son’s killer and has shared his message with thousands through speeches and workshops ever since. Azim Khamisa will present his Violence Impact Forum to area school children next week. He’ll be our guest this hour.
