What do Abraham, Moses, Buddha, Krishna, Jesus and Muhammad all have in common? They were promoters of peace, justice and equality. These attributes help define America today as we pledge, "With liberty and justice for all."

The Prophet Muhammad stated, "All of you are equal. All men, whatever nation or tribe they may belong to, and whatever station in life they may hold are equal." In Matthew 26:52, Jesus stated, "Put your sword back into its place; for those who live by the sword, die by the sword." Buddha also stated, "Hatred does not cease by hatred, but only by love; this is the eternal rule."
