Pluralism Speaker Mike Ghouse Addresses Denton Rotary Club

Mike Ghouse speaking at the Denton Rotary Club’s weekly meeting.

Denton - Denton Rotary Club had the pleasure to hearing Mike Ghouse deliver a powerful keynote message today at El Chaparral Restaurant in downtown Denton.  Nearly 60 of the local Rotarian's were present.  The Denton Rotary Club is actively involved in the community and hosts speakers at their weekly luncheons.

Mr. Ghouse’s message about the need for building a cohesive America fit perfectly into the Rotary International theme for 2011-2012, “Reach Within to Embrace Humanity.”  Embracing diversity where no American has to live in discomfort, anxiety or fear of the other is the foundation of building a cohesive America.

Mike’s passion for teaching everyone about respecting the otherness of the other, and accepting the God given uniqueness of each one of the 312 million of us is reflected in the 501(c)(3) he has founded, America Together Foundation.  His point is that ever since we gained our independence, social, religious and economic issues have pit one American against the other ; as we come together in understanding and trust conflicts fade an solutions emerge.

If we can focus on prosperity and safety in America, all other issues become secondary and resolvable.  Even after enduring the turmoil, we have always come back strong as one nation.

Rotary is an organization of business and professional leaders united worldwide that provides humanitarian service, encourages high ethical standards in all vocations, and helps build goodwill and peace in the world.  Rotary, begun in1905 with the idea of friendship, fellowship and service to others and has spread to six continents and over one million members.  The Rotary Clubs, along with other social organizations, have facilitated pluralism in America; we still have a way to go.

Mr. Ghouse concluded, “I have a dream, a dream to see a cohesive America where we focus on safety and prosperity of every American.  Indeed, prosperity is pluralistic in nature; you cannot have it, unless others around you have it.  You cannot be safe unless others around you are safe.  As an Indian - Muslim - Indian American, I am committed to contribute towards the safety and prosperity of America.”
