Our hearts ache as we can't imagine what type of sickness causes a person to perpetrate such heinous violence. The Mosque Cares thoughts and prayers are with all victims and their families affected by this tragedy. We stand united with all human kind against murder and violence directed toward innocent people. As citizens all of us have a responsibility of keeping the peace.
If we see or know someone suffering from mental illness or violent tendencies we should consult with community services on seeking counsel for individuals that may need counseling. It is our belief that if we all work together to be eyes and ears to protect against violence and potential violence, along with our prayers for peace, a difference can be made.
"Nothing can offer you the kind of comfort with your fellow human being like that bond that unites us under G-D. Unity is important, because human beings want peace." Imam W. Deen Mohammed
