wow. what a powerful story of real courage, love and compassion. that is where real strength lays, in the depths of your love and compassion. Thank you for sharing this experience with the world. I too send many blessing and healing to you and yours as well as love for the ones who victimized you. May they come into awareness and love, and out of ignorance and fear.
I live in East Harlem and as I was riding the bus two days ago, I saw you crossing the street on Lenox and 116th. In that moment I thought to myself how cool it was that you were walking around with your turban in the neighborhood. Many Africans wear traditional garb, but I rarely see anyone in a turban. And, liked it. And, I thought, that you were the kind of person I would like to meet and learn more about. Then, I go online and I find out just how small the world is. Bless you for your compassion and service. Gratitude is where we should all stand, no matter the situation. And, the man that stands for nothing falls for everything. Thank you for standing and for staying. One rotten apple can't possibly spoil the bunch. There is plenty of love for you and your family in Harlem. We are all one community. Thank you for your service. -Tenn
You are an inspiration, while I did not go through what you experienced, I do not feel alone and when I feel victimized I will continue to find gratitude and continue to love. All the best to you and your family.
Thank you , for being who you are , an inspiration . It reminds me of Mahatma Gandhi 's famous Quote " Be the change you wish to see in the world " Blessings .

What an inspiring example of compassion & wisdom! Moved to tears, I feel powerfully reminded of just how connected we all really are.
What's the matter with us? If we are one human race, we all did that. If we aren't then what are we? Thank you for pulling us in the other direction with your response.
Thank you. You and your wife are the examples our world needs.

I feel so lucky to have people like you in this world. Only more light can erase darkness. More love can overcome hatred. May God always shower his blessings on you and your family.
What an inspiring and amazing reflection! Great to start the day by reading this. A pure-hearted reflection like this has more power to do good in the world than we might imagine, for it inspires us to do good and amplify the goodness in our world.
This is beautiful. Your response to this situation seems like it's coming from a truly genuine place in you--one that is naturally aware of compassion, care, interconnectedness, true strength. Thank you for sharing this experience of how you are putting this awareness into action!
I only hope that your gratitude and attitude rubs off on the other people moving into Harlem who continue to be the cause for hate-crimes that the original, Harlem residents endure via economic and political abuses.
You're a better man than I, Prabjhot. My hope is that I could have been as grateful and as wise had that happened to me. Thank you for being the inspiration and the beacon of light you are.
Thank you for choosing to continue living with love instead of fear. I wish many blessings for your family and enlightenment through your actions for those who attacked you.
