What Comes After Tragedy? Forgiveness | Azim Khamisa and Ples Felix

General Session | April 6, 2020

April 6, 2020 | Ples Felix and Azim Khamisa
April 6, 2020 | Ples Felix and Azim Khamisa

On one awful night in 1995, Ples Felix's 14-year-old grandson murdered Azim Khamisa's son in a gang initiation fueled by drugs, alcohol and a false sense of belonging. The deadly encounter sent Khamisa and Felix down paths of deep meditation, to forgive and to be forgiven -- and in an act of bravery and reconciliation, the two men met and forged a lasting bond. Together, they've used their story as an outline for a better, more merciful society, where victims of tragedy can grow and heal. Prepare to be moved by their unimaginable story. "Peace is possible," Khamisa says. "How do I know that? Because I am at peace."

I learned so much from the School Climate Conference!  The information and experience that each speaker shared was relevant, applicable, enlightening, and invaluable.  I have never attended a conference where every session was top notch and well worth the time away from my kids and classroom.

I am always thankful for the opportunity to grow and learn. I can't thank you enough for the experience I had at the school climate conference. The keynote speakers and workshops were fantastic.

School Climate Conference did not disappoint!  Every workshop and speaker absolutely exceeded my expectations.   What a great few days of learning and team building with our staff.  

Cameron Lymon - High School Counselor

I can't wait to do it again in Spring.  It was great hosting so many great educators from across the country.  I was able to connect with old friends and meet a ton of new friends.  I am looking forward to connecting with everyone.  See you in April!!
