A great tragedy has befallen our nation. A catastrophe that leaves none of our lives untouched. Many innocent lives were lost due to a senseless act of terror and violence. Although this horriffic event may outrage many, and rightly so, it cannot be justified or corrected through more violence. Another senseless act in retaliation will not repair the damage done, nor bring back those who were lost. It will only perpetuate a violent, barbaric cycle fueled by hatred and ignorance. The perpetrators of these crimes must be caught and brought
to justice, but without the continued loss of innocent life.
We the undersigned encourage you to take responsible, peaceful action
in bringing the terrorists to justice. Please seriously consider the
negative ramifications of continued killing and perpetuating the cycle
of violence. Although many lives have already been lost, MANY MORE CAN
STILL BE SAVED.
