As a nation, and as a community, we struggle with the senseless acts of violence that destroy lives and leave gaping holes in families and communities. In these times, so many of us turn to the power of our faith, regardless of how we express it, to lament, to reach out to each other with love, to affirm the power of our love to make a difference, to give us strength to carry on the crusade for a more just and loving society, and to send a beam of light into the darkness of anger and hatred.

This past Monday, faith leaders and the faithful from across our community’s faith traditions gathered in Dearborn at the Islamic Center of America to give voice both to heartbreak and to hope through our prayers.
