To: Nevada Interfaith Association

From: Nevada Interfaith Coordinating Council

In light of the violence and increasing assaults in our country, in the world and based on the attacks on Sri Lanka, the Coordinating Council for the Nevada Interfaith Association issues a statement that as a body of diverse religious and spiritual leaders and associated members of the community at large, that we are devastated by the violence perpetuated on a peaceful people. We mourn with those who mourn and pray for those who are seeking spiritual and physical healing at this difficult time.

We pray for those affected that their hearts may be comforted for loved ones lost and for their fears to be quieted as they attempt to return to their peaceful day-to-day lives on their beautiful island in the Indian Ocean. And we reiterate the previous message sent out on behalf of all of NIA by our president, Patricia Meidell.
