Khzir Kahn at Speaker's Series

We experienced a very powerful Speaker Series today as Khzir Khan, the Pakistani American lawyer and Gold Star father who, with his wife Ghazala, received international attention following their speech at the 2016 Democratic National Convention, spoke to us. Khan has since written two books, An American Family: A Memoir of Hope and Sacrifice and This is Our Constitution, a book about the Constitution for Middle Schoolers. Khan spoke passionately to our young people as future leaders who are empowered to make a difference in the world and stressed the importance of two concepts/practices - fairness and civility - that should dictate how we treat others. He strongly encouraged all of us to read and appreciate our Constitution and our Declaration of Independence.
