A Statement of Solidarity

May we join together for a moment of silence for condolence for victims of terrorism in Paris, Beirut, Turkey, domestically, and around the world.

In the midst of such human tragedy, we continue to persevere in the hope for a more just and peaceful world, for a commitment to increase our awareness of ourselves, each other, and our communities. May it be so.
