Hashim Garrett, at the age of 15, suffered a spinal cord injury from a bullet shot. He spoke about the importance of education, the cause of conflicts and the need to forgive. Quoting Martin Luther King, Jr., Hashim lives by the belief that "Forgiveness is not a one-time event; it is an attitude that must be lived." Hashim has been a six year speaker for the Harvard Violence Prevention Curriculum and educates young people on "Wisdom and Understanding" in their communities.
