Intercultural Dialogue Institute condemns the bombing at Boston Marathon. Our organization is committed to promoting peace, respect and dialogue in our society, and we are deeply saddened by this disheartening news. We are repulsed by this senseless act of terrorism and loss of innocent life. We offer healing prayers to the victims, and we share the grief with fellow Americans. This evil act reinforces the urgent need for international solidarity. With that objective in mind, nations will gain more security in their pursuit of international collaboration, reinforced by an atmosphere of trust and interdependence. We hope that the perpetrators will be brought to justice as soon as possible so we may progress in our mission toward a peaceful global community.
