Sept. 11 statement on terrorist attacks
All of us in the San Fernando Valley react with sorrow and sympathy for thousands who lost loved ones in today’s terrorist attacks.
The San Fernando Valley is one of the most diverse areas in the world. I am sure we will pull together–Christians, Hindus, Muslims, Jews, Buddhist and people of all faiths–to provide comfort to the grieving, to assure security for our families and to support such anti-terrorist actions as necessary.
I note, with particular sorrow, that one of the airplanes that was lost was bound from Dulles International Airport (Washington, D.C.) to LAX, a route which my Los Angeles colleagues and I fly weekly. I pray for the safety of the many DC-LAX commuters and flight crews I have come to know over the years.
