The Islamic Center of Greater Cincinnati (ICGC) is saddened to hear of another mass shooting this week in Boulder, Colorado. Our hearts and prayers are with the victims and their families. The senseless loss of ten lives is another sad reminder of the tragic effects of hate and violence, including a police officer leaving seven children behind.
ICGC condemns all such perpetrators of violence regardless of race, religion, or ethnicity. They must all be equally held accountable! We call upon our nation to come together and address the issues of hate, racism, and gun violence. Only then can we break the destructive cycle and pursue peace and safety for all. It is essential for the wellbeing of us as a people and America as a nation.
We pray for the innocent victims in Boulder, Atlanta, and everywhere else hate tarnishes our existence.
With prayers for peace,
