TEDTalks Zak Ebrahim

Zak Ebrahim

Mar 2014

Zak Ebrahim, the son of one of the terrorists that planned the attack on the World Trade Centers, presents a talk on how a person that is brought up in a world of violence and dogma can choose another path. Despite being groomed for a life of hatred, he talks about how he chose another direction for his life and how others can do the same.

For the victims of terrorism, I will speak out against these senseless acts and condemn my father’s actions.¬†And with that simple fact, I stand here as proof that violence isn’t inherent in one’s religion or race, and the son does not have to follow the ways of his father. I am not my father.

Zak Ebrahim: I am the son of a terrorist. Here's how I chose peace.
