On the morning of September 11, 2001, J.J. Keki, a Ugandan musician and coffee farmer, was in New York about to visit the World Trade Center, but instead witnessed the attack on the Twin Towers. He came away with strong emotions about religious conflict and a vision. Back home in his village, Keki was determined to find a way for people who held different beliefs to work together. Here is a rare and timely story of hope, economic cooperation and religious harmony in an often-struggling part of the world. Because of Keki's vision, his community has achieved what many people strive for: a growing peace.
