In 2001, while working at a Dallas convenience store, Rais Bhuiyan was shot in the face by Mark Stroman, a white supremacist seeking vengeance for the 9/11 tragedy. Remarkably, Bhuiyan survived the attack and responded by forgiving his attacker and attempting unsuccessfully to prevent his execution. Bhuiyan is now a peace activist and the founder and president of World Without Hate, an organization dedicated to eradicating ignorance, hate, and violence through education and by fostering compassion, empathy, and understanding.
