To the Innocent People of Spain

On behalf of myself and other members, I offer our condolences for the death of the innocent people of Spain who were killed in the train bombings on Friday March 12, 2004.

Peace in many countries is becoming ever more difficult to maintain. We reject violence and offer our solidarity to the families of those dead and injured victims. We ask everyone to work together to seek to maintain peace for every citizen of the world regardless of what country they are from. Senseless violence by governments, organizations, and individuals must stop.

We must all recognize that our differences, whether due to religion or culture or language, can be reconciled through peaceful means if we all truly commit ourselves to doing so.
