We offer our prayers and thoughts to everyone involved in the horrendous event in Berlin last evening. We pray for those who lost their lives and for all who were injured or witnessed this tragedy and for their families. We remember also the victims of the attack in Turkey.
The Christmas season should be one of good will to all people, when families and friends make a special effort to celebrate together.
We must all resolve to work together with even more urgency for a change of heart, we cannot place all responsibility on our elected leaders to effect change. We must each use our voice for the good of all people.
We must act in a responsible manner and not allow voices of hate to use this terrible situation to fuel division or the targeting of any vulnerable groups.
Anne Peacey, for NJPN Exec.
