Happy July 4th, July 4, 2013

We are  blessed to be Americans, the land of the free. And we are willing to stand up for the liberties of fellow Americans, and fellow humanity, because we believe that all men are created Equal.

I am proud to be an American!


We are Americans! We are one nation under God, indivisible with liberty and justice for all.
We are represented by every race, nationality, ethnicity, language, culture and religion.
Collectively, we see God as one, none and many and in every form; male, female, genderless and non-existent, being and non-being, nameless and with innumerable names.
Americans together are committed to preserving the pluralistic heritage of America

TRAILER OF THE FILM: Americans Together

No American has to live in apprehension or fear of the other. 
We have systems in place to safeguard that.

The safety, security and freedom of every American hinges on each others safety.  I cannot be safe if people around me are not!

I cannot be secure if I threaten others around me…
If we can learn to respect the otherness of others and accept  the God given uniqueness of each one of us, then conflicts fade and solutions emerge.

Delivered at the Annual Ahmadiyya Muslim convention


Freedom is one of the most cherished values of humanity and I am pleased to share its arrangement in American and Islamic space. Both emphasize the freedom of conscience, justice and liberty.  

As American Muslims, "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."

How to Build a Cohesive America
by Mike Ghouse

Deep down, all of us want a just society where everyone feels safe and secure without anxiety, discomfort or fear of the other. If we can learn to respect the otherness of others and accept the God-given uniqueness of each one of us, then conflicts fade and solutions emerge. Motivational speaker and writer Mike Ghouse will take us through common aspirations to our rights and obligations, and how each one of us can contribute toward such a society in the simplest way. Indeed, Ghouse asserts, we want to live our lives as good neighbors and let others live theirs.

Standing up for Others
by Mike Ghouse

Standing up for others is the right thing to do. If we don't stand up for those who are vulnerable, then who will stand up for us when we are vulnerable? This program will be heavy on real examples of standing up for others from atheists to Zoroastrians and every one in between including immigrants, LGBT and others. It is a moving story that almost everyone can relate to. Motivational speaker and writer Mike Ghouse hopes that this program will inspire each person to go out and do small acts of goodness on their own.
