Today we stand against all forms of violence in our society.
We mourn with those who have lost loved ones and with those whose innocence
has been lost in cruelty of violent actions.
We believe that we need to model and teach respect for all people,
irrespective of gender, age, race, faith or culture.
We particularly believe in teaching our boys to respect all women
as we raise them to be young men of character who will be role models
in their families and communities.
