this past week, we learned of an apparent hate crime that killed two
African-Americans, both senior citizens, at a Jeffersontown, Kentucky grocery
store, just a short while after the accused shooter unsuccessfully tried entering
the locked doors of a Black church. And
then came the devastating news of a massacre inside a Pittsburgh synagogue, killing
eleven victims during Shabbat services and wounding others, in what the
Anti-Defamation League says is the deadliest attack on Jews in our country’s
history. This is a painful time in
America, where racism, anti-Semitism, acts of hatred and gun violence should
have no place. The Prince George’s
County Council offers our thoughts and prayers to families and loved ones, as
we grieve for the innocent victims of senseless gun violence. We encourage all Prince Georgians to join
the County Council as we pause to remember the names of these victims, learn their
stories, and pray for their families, communities and our nation.
