In Solidarity With the People of Turkey
Yesterday, in a cowardly act of barbarism, terrorists have bombed Istanbul’s busy airport, taking the lives of dozens of innocent civilians. The civilized world stands resolute today with the people of Turkey. Around the world, we all can reinforce the Turkish people’s resolve by expressing our condolences, by praying for the injured to heal, and by rededicating our own commitment to the values that place peace and pluralism above coercion and tyranny. We stand together with the families who have lost their loved ones, and we pray for the speedy recovery of those who were wounded in this terrible act.
