Palestinian doctor Izzeldin Abuelaish gives a heartfelt message of forgiveness, tolerance, and empowerment. The suffering in this world, he says, is manmade, and each person has the ability to speak out and challenge it. Having lost three daughters and one niece to an Israeli tank shell, Abuelaish could easily have become a hateful person. But he realizes the destruction hate always brings, calling it "a poison, a disease, a fire that eats the one who carries it." In response and to honor and give meaning to his daughters' and niece's death, Abuelaish established Daughters for Life, a foundation that provides education, health, and leadership courses, so that other girls can live out the dreams of his daughters.
