September 11th Families for Peaceful Tomorrows is deeply saddened by the news of the death of Christian Peacemaker Teams’ Tom Fox, a man whose only goal was to bring peace and reconciliation to the beleaguered people of Iraq. We extend our condolences to his family for the loss of a loved one so dedicated and committed to peace. As the number of civilian casualties mounts, we are brought again to the words of Martin Luther King: "Wars make poor chisels for carving out peaceful tomorrows." As we mourn Tom Fox’s death, let us also learn from his conviction, his dedication to a greater good, and his willingness to remain human in the face of the inhumanity of terrorism, violence and war.
