The Guibord Center’s Response to the Recent Murders
In Buffalo, Laguna Woods and Uvalde

The Guibord Center joins with people throughout this land
in grieving the recent murders of our fellow Americans
here in their own communities.

We embrace the agony of losing their loved ones
and pledge to honor their memory.

We say to those
who feed angry and troubled souls
the poison of resentment
in the service of anarchy and terror:

“Hatred brings only death; it cannot bring Life.”

We are each and every one of us
connected to something greater than ourselves.

The Web of Life.

True power comes in choosing
to love one another
– even now –
to honor the Sacred in the Other
to work for the good of all
even in the face of such calculated cruelty and death.

Our hearts ache for those taken too soon,
and for those who remain shattered.

The work of healing is the hardest work of all.

We each do it alone
we do it together.

– Dr. Lois M. Sprague, Ph.D., President
