Amy Biehl Foundation -  In Summer, 1993 Stanford University graduate Amy Biehl was stoned to death by enraged young South African Blacks. 
    They did not realize she was there as a relentless fighter for human rights.
    In response, her parents began devoting their lives to establish programs to train and help South African Blacks, including the same young men who killed their daughter.
    The year after Amy’s murder, Apartheid ended in South African, and there was a new birth of freedom in the land.

Judea Pearl and Akbar Ahmed — Two years ago American journalist Daniel Pearl was murdered in Pakistan.  His father, Judea, chose to encourage Muslims and Jews all over the world to reach out to one another to build relationships.  He models his idea by travelling and speaking with Muslim Akbar Ahmed, another university educator, as a living example of redeeming violent death by treating a root cause—ignorance of one another, not listening, not feeling heard and understood.  Judea’s newly established Daniel Pearl Foundation is described at http://www.danielpearl.org/ .

The Parents Circle - Families Forum -  In the Middle East, 500 Israeli and Palestinian bereaved households, all of whom have lost an immediate family member in the on-going conflict, choose to reject violence.  Instead of seeking revenge, they grieve and build new relationships together.  Palestinian Dr. Adel Misk, is the Chairperson of the Palestinian branch.  Israeli Boaz Kitain, the Educational Activities Director, has replaced Orthodox Jewish Israeli Yitzhak Frankenthal as General Manager.  The inspiring story of this new breed of Semite is at http://www.theparentscircle.org/ .
