    It is very inspiring to see such an approach I can only watch at a distance and hope that we can do something similar here in Europe in the near future.

    I do hope for the best for all involved. Certainly more people of diverse backgrounds will enliven future events. Let's pour out our best prayers for this one, and for the growth of many more such events, including interactive digital components.
    Start where you are planted and bring the light and water of love and life to grow.

    A little disappointed not to see more diversity in particular when the Baha'is have been called to lead the world in addressing the "most challenging issue." There are a number of truly gifted Baha'is and non-Baha'is of African, Native American and Latino descent who could make some valuable contributions to this forthcoming event. I hope you will work diligently to address this issue in the future otherwise all we are offering a bewildered world is lip service.

      Dear Masud, Thank you for your comment. The images on this page may not properly communicate the diversity however we do have African Americans, Korean, Italian, Persian, Hispanic....and diverse thoughts and professional backgrounds including musicians, scientists, engineers, author, high school student, college student, actors, former priest, CEO, psychologist, medical doctor....and we have more women than men as speakers. We absolutely appreciate the need for diversity and please be rest assured that we continue to work very diligently to bring about as much diversity in these efforts as we possibly can. Much love, payam

    How blessed I am to be a Bahai, I am moved by your allowing folks to determine what they can afford and even offering two free tickets! I will not be able to attend, I live in Ohio, but thank you for offering such an extensive conference!
