At this time of grief, our hearts go out to the people of France, as well as to the people of Syria, Iraq, Lebanon and other countries traumatized by deadly violence -- people of all races, religions and nationalities.

This is a time of shock and fear, but also can be a time of reflection and action.

As a first step, you can add your name to this petition that makes a simple yet vital statement:

"We want to express our condolences to all people who are suffering and mourning the results of organized deadly violence, from Paris and Beirut to Syria, Iraq and Lebanon. Humanity is indivisible. We reject any attempt by political leaders to exploit tragic events to promote more war."

Please forward this email to friends, then click here to participate in this global petition.

Below are links to background with thoughtful analysis and key information.

Thank you.
