It is with a heavy heart that we wake up this morning to learn of the news out of Las Vegas, Nevada.
Rumi Forum condemns to the highest degree such unnecessary, sick use of violence against innocent concert goers.
We stand in solidarity against violence, hate, and terror, as well as any attempt to justify this horrible act.
Our hearts go out to the victims, their families and all those who were affected by this attack.
“What has violence ever accomplished? What has it ever created? No martyr’s cause has ever been stilled by an assassin’s bullet. No wrongs have ever been righted by riots and civil disorders. A sniper is only a coward, not a hero; and an uncontrolled or uncontrollable mob is only the voice of madness, not the voice of the people.” Robert Kennedy
