Your fate is ours; we
share all your pain and outrage.
Nations must unite.
Tonight my thoughts and prayers are with the citizens of Mumbai, India as they face the terrible aftermath of seven simultaneous explosions on rush hour trains. As you must have heard, news reports indicate more than 160 people have died in the blasts, while scores are seriously injured.
This madness - reaching its tentacles to the far corners of the world - will never end until all governments face the consequences of their actions; of their effect on others. We inhabit the same precious planet and must try to bridge the gaps between rich and poor; between the haves and the have-nots. We need to encourage more dialogue; more discussion of opposing views. We must find solutions to stem this tide of terrorism, lest every country on earth be scarred by senseless violence.
