July 15 Statement from Mai Fernandez, Executive Director of the National Center for Victims of Crime

Our hearts are with all those who’ve been affected by the recent horrific violence both here and abroad, and we grieve with those who’ve lost loved ones. The violence of the past several weeks has made us all feel vulnerable. Mothers, fathers, families, communities, police departments, our President, and those preyed upon by evil at home and oversees are struggling to find a means to end the violence. It is easy to become hopeless. We must not let the recent attacks diminish our desire for mutual understanding and peace. Some have called for a national day of rage. It may be that we need to acknowledge our anger before we can move towards healing and reconciliation. By joining a peaceful protest, talking to a friend or a loved one, holding your children closer, expressing kindness to strangers, or simply contemplating your role in promoting peace, we can prevail and strengthen and unify our communities.
