Letter of Sympathy and Support

Dear America:

 On behalf of Liberian nationals here in the United States, we take this moment to express our deepest sympathies to the people of the United States, especially to the thousands affected by last week’s tragic events. The thoughts and prayers of all of us are with the families and friends of those who are victims of the horrendous acts of terrorism in New York and Washington. We will continue to hold the victims and their families in our thoughts and prayers and in our hearts.

 While the September 11 events were devastating, we continue to believe in the United States and its values, its continued promise and its continued hope. We support President Bush and Congress in their endeavors to meet the challenges these attacks present, and in achieving the ultimate goals of bringing to justice the individuals or organizations responsible for these horrific criminal acts. Our thoughts and prayers continued to be with each and every one of you charged with the responsibility of governing this great nation.

 The United States remains strong in our hearts. It is the America of hope fulfilled and freedom promised. It is that United States that we seek to become part of through HR 1806/S 656, “The Liberian Refugee Immigration Fairness Act of 2001.” This is the America that no terrorist can ever destroy. It is the America that we live and work in, benefiting from the nation’s greatness, and contributing to our communities and localities. Thank you for your interest and support.

 God bless America.

 Mohamedu F. Jones
