You know it it it doesn't take me to tell you that he obviously led to the terrible terrorist attacks that occurred on September 11.
-- but there is a day that is supposedly going to try and unite.
Not only this country but with other countries and the amount of hate that that spreads around the world and far be it from you know any American to stop out from potentially preventing future terrorist attacks and and try to create some kind of humor humanity I mean.
If -- if the United Nations can't create diplomatic piece of other countries then you know -- leave it to.
People and our country to take matters into their own hands and that is where universal.
Harmony day comes into play.
It aimed at transforming the 9/11 anniversary into universal harmony day which many people -- said that it should -- com.
A national holiday if you will time to celebrate peace and compassion and -- and -- individuals to listen.
To one another.
Joining me now here on the citizens say John Mary on he's the -- power foundation creator -- -- universal harmony day I think he's so much.
Then you're the executive producer of a video.
That's correct actually I did get along with shine -- light productions and and I basically had three things of the time when the three things that people talk about the most cities.
People have a hard time dealing with homosexuality.
In the intolerance -- that.
People have a difficult time still was black and white issues.
And then the third -- -- Islam phobia you and I just felt you -- -- what's.
Let's invite -- three different themes into one video.
Because -- humanity still being challenged by it and I learned that even more so as I traveled the country went to sixteen different cities on me.
National anti -- campaign.
That I personally sponsored and I really want to go and talk to children connect for children.
And what -- is that bullying.
It's the same thing the same reasons that children hurt each other.
Are the same reasons why the terrorists flew those planes into our buildings and I -- you know this is very dangerous thing for me to learn that they hatred is the same.
So the education.
Has to happen here on the home front and then go.
-- We have your PS -- wanna go ahead and ruled out clues of the video that we're speaking -- and then I'll have you comment to honor her in a moment.
-- Growth and -- I was told that I had equal opportunities but I never really believed it.
Seeing the president looking a little something like me.
I know that anything is possible.
Flakes and finally.
Flynn and it's like any and -- American.
-- -- -- freedom and human equality.
And I would like to see 9/11 at the -- selling fake you -- harmony.
So why and how did you produce up.
Well first saw me -- gulf war veteran.
Air force from the air force 1990 I served.
And when you see 3000 people -- in the medical field and you see basically anything you can possibly imagine what can happen to human being.
And how that will lead did we just spread hatred to the region even more -- So very little good came from that original war than we had fought so learning that lesson I've seen what war is just not an option.
Education is the only option.
Teaching people throughout the world how we're really united as one.
And how in America we've really got that right.
And in the way we can really get it out there is to create a different perception to the media where the media -- start to show what people really think in America.
Liked that film that was created was one person's perception but it does not represent what America's of.
-- talked him up anti Muslim -- exactly that has produced you know.
International controversy it was it was made by somebody here in the United States.
It is still the storm out of angry violent anti American messages throughout the Muslim world -- cost American lives.
I mean what do you what do you make of this and and exactly how do we stand up to you know one video like this that has caused so much turmoil.
Well I think I think first and foremost that individual should.
And let people know that he feels what he did was wrong I feel he should we speak out but.
And I feel that people in the Muslim world should understand that this is not American value that.
We have millions and was losing living in America that loves America of course and I think that perception they don't get these AC one.
Person doing something and that's the perception of American that's just not.
Who we are we're very compassionate people that loves.
All humanity yeah so you have BM the -- power foundation which is a nonprofit organizations make clear its scheduled to launch in fall of 2012.
That's exactly us and it and it's all about what exactly if you could summon up well you know it's about inviting -- to concepts one -- some traveling the country.
And I'll be traveling the world to promote this.
Concept of -- as my way of dealing with the whole -- crisis the -- crisis really is a world crisis is all these other countries if you Google it and then equal to that.
Is to -- harmony.
On eight on oh on a worldwide level as far as like such as this video that's produced it really is you have to do things to the media.
To make people understand what the world is really all about.
OK and there's open there's a website for people to go to to learn more about that lesson to learn about information regarding the video and in your cause and then.
In your foundation yes what do you want people to do what they go to my website -- harmony by karate.
And the very top.
It's the how many power movement right there you click on and you can see the whole movement everything that's been happening.
And it's pretty huge and I'm very excited to get people involved what's been the reaction to that gives -- I think people love it because it's you're you're shown the truth this is the truth now and we're dealing with the truth right now and I think that the world -- involving.
This is what's happening in it and sometimes when you -- you go through pain.
And I and I love the fact that people are now talking and realizing that certain things are not okay that when -- -- freedom.
At the expense of hurting other people that that was wrong for that person to do that.
Yes the only.
The only I -- downside to this is that when you're dealing with terrorists you're dealing with al-Qaeda and the which was behind this Libyan attack yes that murdered a US ambassador.
You're not dealing with people who will listen.
Can be taught to listen and we'll ever listen to anything outside of their own beliefs with which are driven by radical -- Is -- but he -- that he -- the -- -- how you get people radicals to listen to a message like this it sounds great.
Nobody but his word here's what you he's what you do it's very simple to make.
Is that it's the masses that always wins and what -- the radicals do with it try to recruit the masses so if you educate the masses over time you eliminate all of that.
You sure there're there are very high rate up.
Individuals and Libya that that were absolutely against that -- the killing of this ambassador would actually -- their people who.
But they can't control Qaeda so I mean this is that this is -- you're always gonna harassing lesson for for those who have influence in these countries however.
How do you get terrorists solicit and you know that's what it -- -- the day -- Down to implement it it does boil down to -- that's one piece in the picture -- back again to educating the masses educating children my.
You want to cultivate the future and eliminate that you have to begin -- dealing with people that are open mind is driven into their minds and are very very young in this country club you don't.
But that same radicalism is -- is that we have people at a Christian or radical mean we've got.
-- they're just extremists and yes.
Group and I aren't I have a dream.
And I have a master's degree spiritual development with Sony site learned a lot about different cultures and night.
I don't consider myself an expert but it definitely opened -- -- down to the possibilities of how things can really change.
Things can really change in a very positive way and the same with the media is used.
To -- to show all these images these dark images in the world and it could be used to show all of these positive.
Great things that are going on what people are connecting people are open minded and want to change.
That would be great to see the media actually take -- -- gory Ingle -- a story yeah.
I think you're on -- something maybe you can get more media other than ourselves -- to jump on board I think that's fantastic well.
Really getting the whole world is watching.
You know I mean and we're not just talking about American viewers here we're talking about the whole world the good guys and the bad guys yet so spreading this kind of powerful positive message.
Can't be a bad thing.
