2665 Villa Creek Dr, Suite 206
Dallas, TX 75234 – USA
we are pleased to announce the launch of America Together foundation, committed to building a cohesive America. The organization will focus on bringing Americans together with a series of educational programs to address the critical issues facing our nation in an open forum to find pluralistic solutions to restore the cohesiveness of our society and work towards building a safe and secure America. No American has to live in anxieties, discomfort or fear of the other.
Standing up for others
It is inspiring to see those who stand up for others.Standing up for others is the right thing to do, every human goes through a period of invincibility to vulnerability, if we don’t stand up for those who are vulnerable, then who will stand up for us when we are vulnerable?
Mike Ghouse for America
I have a dream, a dream to strengthen the pluralistic values of America, and the desire to encourage the community of nations to review our values of Liberty, Justice and co-existence as catalysts for prosperity. No community or a nation can have undue advantages over others. Such benefits are temporary and deleterious to lasting peace. We have to maintain a healthy balance within our communities and with all nations, what is good for America, has got to be good for the world and vice versa.
Israel Palestine dialogue
The real threat to the peace process between Israel and Palestine stems from their inability to look at their own policies critically. It is time to quit blaming and start finding solutions. Damn it, the leaders ought to be ashamed of them if they cannot look in the eyes of Palestinian and Israeli Children and commit to give them a better life. The leaders need to learn that, they cannot have peace and security when they keep threatening others around them, period.
We have to take interests in our City, its governance, its civic responsibility. The blog is created to increase the awareness of it. It is a chronicle of my involvement in the affairs of my City.
Mike Ghouse for India
We are proud of our heritage – a multi-faith, multi-cultural, multi-regional and multi-linguistic society, where we have come to accept and respect every which way people have lived their lives. For over 5000 years, India has been a beacon of pluralism – it has embraced Islam, Christianity, Judaism, Baha’i and Zoroastrianism to include in the array of the indigenous religions; Hinduism, Jainism, Buddhism and Sikhism. I am proud of my heritage and am proud to be an Indian-American.
Our goal is to identify the conflicts across the globe and find pluralistic solutions. I believe peace is an outcome of justice and liberty to one and all. God has created each one of us and it is our responsibility to treat everyone as we would want to be treated. If we can learn to accept and respect the God given uniqueness to each one of the 7 billion of us, then conflicts fade and solutions emerge.
Media Screw ups
INCREASINGLY FOCUSED ON competitiveness and profits, the mainstream American media is under pressure for its own survival. Indeed, it is at a critical juncture of having to choose between fulfilling its societal responsibility and succumbing to the political compulsions of our times. As a society we need to evaluate the importance of the media in our American system of governance. Does it still play the crucial role the founding fathers of our nation had envisioned for it?
Ground Zero Mosque
This issue is engaging the American Public, both for and against, in this blog I will save the links of articles that come across my knowledge as a reference for the researchers. We have to find solutions for co-existence and sustainable harmony. It is a shrine and it is a catalyst to consciously create a society we desire; where all of us will learn to respect the otherness of other and accept the God given differences. It is anti-theatrical to radicals from all traditions.
Peter King Hearings
We are concerned about the hearings and hope and pray that Mr. King would be honest, sincere and fair, although his record is marred with bigotry. We hope he will not destroy the fabric of our society and pit one American against the other. If he does, the American people will not put up with it, as they have done that time and again. I trust our system and our people who have stood up against Vietnam War, Iraq war and supported abortion and civil rights and one of these days’ rights for GLBT and every American.
