We never know, do we, when we will be called on to put aside those issues 
which divide us and seek healing for ourselves, our community and the 
families who have been so tragically harmed.

It reminds us to be grateful for what we have and to mourn together what we 
have lost.  I think Moscow will never be the same.  This is the day which 
all of us who live here will always remember as a defining and tragic 

My heartfelt condolences to the members of the Police Force who have lost an 
honored member, the Newbill family who has lost a loved one; and to the 
other members of the hospital community and the civic community my gratitude 
for the response meant to heal the wounded and protect the rest of us.

And thank you Ghazi, for the beautiful words.
