Project COMMON BOND Summer 2019


Dear Friends of Tuesday's Children,

Last month, we welcomed 59 attendees from 13 countries to our 12th annual Project COMMON BOND summer session in Washington, D.C. While everyone came from different walks of life, they all shared one tragic commonality: the loss of a family member due to terrorism, violent extremism or war.

At Project COMMON BOND, participants learned that there are others who identify with their pain, and that hope and resilience is possible. Dignity sessions led by trained clinicians, group activities like sports and art and more led to the creation of lifelong friendships and the enrichment of cross-cultural exchange. It's wonderful to know that these young people will return home empowered to be peacebuilders and agents of change.

All of us at Tuesday's Children are proud and honored to welcome these individuals to our community, and we look forward to the bright futures that await them. Terrorism, violent extremism and war may be powerful forces, but peace, dignity and friendship can prevail.

Warmest regards,

Terry Sears
Executive Director, Tuesday's Children
