Triangle Interfaith Alliance's statement in response to Connecticut Shooting
The Triangle Interfaith Alliance joins countless others around the globe in mourning for the families and community of Newtown, Connecticut following the tragic deaths of 28 individuals including innocent children and committed educators on Dec. 14, 2012. To promote a culture of peace and justice, the Triangle Interfaith Alliance encourages all men, women and children to embody and advocate for a culture of compassion and non-violence. The global "Charter for Compassion"(www.charterforcompassion.org) states, " The principle of compassion lies at the heart of all religious, ethical and spiritual traditions, calling us always to treat others as we wish to be treated ourselves."
