| The Mulberry event seeded the change in how Muslims would react to future Quran burning, criticism of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) and Islam and also established that this is the standard model of Muslims to be compared.

Sacred documentary - Summary

In the second half of the piece, I have included links to the Terry Jones' Quran Burning event from 2013, which was diffused through peaceful means. It is a story about skillfully managing conflicting issues of safety of Americans overseas, upholding freedom of speech, perceptions about Muslims, preserving the sacredness of religions and building cohesive Societies.

It is an epitome of nonviolent conflict mitigation and goodwill nurturance based on the teachings of Jesus and Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). Hopefully, the world will see a new paradigm in making; what Muslims ought to be, and how they will respond to future incidents of Quran Burning, criticism of Islam, and cartoons of the Prophet. It will be good for Muslims and good for the world. Indeed, blessed are the peacemakers.  A film is being made about this and is called "Sacred".

I hope this piece prompts you to think of the difficult encounters you may have had dealt with people of different faiths.  This is a long story and I hope it offers insights into what it takes to build a cohesive America, a genuinely free America where no one has to live in apprehension and fear of the other.
