9/11 Families Mourn With the Victims and Families of Colorado Mass Murder

NEW YORK-July 22-The following statement may be attributed
to September 11th Families for Peaceful Tomorrows.

As family members of those lost in the attacks of 9/11/2001,
we mourn with those who lost family members and dear friends
on 7/21. We understand the days ahead will be filled with
the horrors that come from the endless retellings of the
stories of that horrific night. We offer our love and
prayers as they work through complex emotions as they move
forward from this horrific event. We hope for each of
them, as for each of us, healing emerges as they remember
with love those who were lost and make of this great tragedy
greater love.

The escalating violence in our nation saddens us
immensely. It reminds us that attacks similar to those
that claimed our loved ones continue. In the years
following the attacks of 9/11 our streets and our cities
have become more dangerous as the ever present threat of
violence becomes yet another public tragedy. There is no
hope for peace for any of us as long as weapons and the
rights to bear them overshadow our concerns for more
fundamental human needs.
