The world has watched in horror over the last few weeks as, one after another, places of worship have been violated by terrorists during times of worship, two of them targeted on specially holy days.  We have all mourned together and held each other in prayers and in light and supported each other with love and compassion, so that through the tragedies, closeness and understanding may be fostered.
