CMN: Azim Khamisa on Forgiveness Amidst Gang Violence (July 2009)
When his only son, Tariq, was killed by a 14-year-old gang member, Azim Kamisa chose to forgive. The point of commitment came when he met with his son’s killer in prison.
Through workshops, keynote speeches and consulting, Azim (who started the Tariq Khamisa Foundation in honor of his son) carries the message that peace can be restored, no matter what has gone before. His simple 3-step process untangles the mystery behind forgiveness and sets people free to enjoy a life full of richness and meaning.
