Student Comments:

Rais was a brilliant speaker.  His story is amazing and enthralling.  From just surviving the attack to actually forgiving his attacker, he possessed an enormous amount of faith.  His faith carried him through all of his surgeries and through his process of working to get his attacker off death row.  His organization, World Without Hate, is a wonderful idea and cause, but I do not believe its goal is plausible.  It is great that people believe and try to spread world peace, but we are human beings, and conflict is in our nature.  Conflict comes from our free will to believe in different ideologies, thus when these beliefs contradict each other, there is conflict.  Rais’s story is an inspiring story that should change all of us and empower us to be forgiving and filled with kindness instead of hate.  We should all try to resolve our differences through peaceful means before we turn to our last resort – violence.  I agree with all that Rais said and did, and I am so glad I had the extraordinary opportunity to listen to his story and be influenced by his incredible faith.   -Dalton Hoelscher
