Springs of Hope, did an amazing job bringing together incredible Keynote speakers from Muslim, Christian and Jewish backgrounds. United by the effects of terrorism in their personal lives, the tone of this forum was not revenge, but hope. Through mutual respect and shared understanding the various participants gave informative presentations and interacted in discussion panels.
