AMV’s statement on Osma Bin Laden’s killing
Newark, California, May 3, 2011, American Muslim Voice Foundation released the following statement in the wake of the official announcement that Osama Bin Laden, has been killed.
American Muslim Voice Foundation has been committed to build an inclusive, peaceful and beloved nation since its inception. September 11th 2001 was one of the worst tragedies of our nation, that tragedy was used to create a culture of despair, division, hate and violence around the world. Let us hope that we can all focus on healing and building a culture of hope, inclusion, love and peace.
We salute “September 11 Families for Peaceful Tomorrows” for their dedication and commitment to peace and for remembering not just their loved ones at this time but all of the innocent people around the world who have died, and continue to die, as a result of the events of September 11th 2001. Your deep understanding and wisdom is greatly appreciated by American Muslim Voice Foundation team. Please remember that you are all in our thoughts and prayers at this difficult time.
We strongly believe that in order to build peace, we must shatter all barriers because our country’s safety, security and peaceful tomorrows depend on our getting to know each other. We are encouraging all Americans and global communities to start getting to know each other by nurturing old friendships and sowing the seeds of new ones, so we can build a peaceful, inclusive and beloved world.
Please join hands with us as we walk on the path Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. paved for us by opening your homes and hearts on Sunday, October 2nd 2011 for our new campaign “National Invite your Neighbors to Dinner Day” www.amuslimvoice.org.
We thank you for being our peace partner for this campaign and many other peace projects.
