Today, December 14, 2012, Silicon Valley United Nations Association chapter joins with all who are deeply saddened and dismayed by the most recent mass murder in our nation, at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. We ask prayers for comfort and peace for those closely affected by this tragedy. May all who seek peace at home and abroad diligently redouble our efforts.
