100 Brave Storm for Vigil
Surrey, BC -- A vigil prayer for the victims of Quebec Islamic Cultural Center took place on Friday, February 3rd from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 pm at Holland Park in Surrey, B.C. The purpose of this event was to show solidarity with the victims' families and to bring together generations of people from different faiths to promote peace and understanding in a world faced with extremism and violence.
Linda Hepner, Mayor or Surrey, Councillor Mike Starchuck and a myriad of MPs and MLAs condemned the savage attack in the strongest terms possible. A strong presence of faith-based and non-profit organizations made it clear that we will conquer hate with compassion, love, understanding and justice. We overwhelmingly reject the politics of racism and exclusion, and standing together, we are committed to building a diverse, inclusive and welcoming society that promotes respect for all, regardless of faith, race or ethnicity.
The directors reflected on why the Amazing Tutors Children's Foundation organized the vigil: "Our sincere hope is to protect and help communities cope and build resilience in a rapidly changing world characterized with high levels of extremism. We feel that no one has the right to take away a person's spiritual free will and self-determination, nor their underlying strength, and we are doing everything within our power to fight for peace and condemn this horrific attack. We need to be engaged in a process of healing that is collaborative, enhancing, inclusive, practical, pro-active and responsible. We must stand united together to create a society of love and justice. These horrific attacks on innocent civilians are really meant to divide us, however, with love and justice as our common shield, we can recognize our differences and strive to be the best human being."
Any savage attacks on innocent civilians, whether they occur in Canada, Syria, Paris, Beirut, Brussels, Pakistan, USA or in any other city or country, are heinous and without justification. We stand in solidarity and condemn these demonic, horrific acts in the strongest terms possible. Today, our thoughts are with the loved ones of those killed and injured.
As a foundation advocating for children everywhere, The Amazing Tutors Children's Foundation condemns violence against children regardless of the form it takes. The children at the Mosque in the Islamic Cultural Center attended with their families to pray and worship. A threat to their lives should raise concerns for everyone about religiously motivated violence. These innocent lives must be protected, for within them are the seeds of the world we want to build. If we hope to create a society of tolerance, freedom and compassion, then we must secure the safety of all children and their families regardless of race, religion, or gender.
Children represent the future of our society and community. Violence against them will only continue the cycle of intolerance and hate that divides us as people. By standing together in condemnation against violence, we can help break the cycle, and create communities of understanding, caring, and compassion. The children attended prayers with their families, making the mosque populated while the attack ensued.
The timing of the attack only raises concerns about intolerance and violence within our communities. At a time when communication and diplomacy are needed more than ever, acts such as this only exacerbate and inflate tensions between religious communities here in Canada. If we hope to create greater understanding between people, we must take steps to end violence that fosters intolerance and hatred.
We call everyone to help end violence, especially when it threatens the lives of children. As a community, we should strive to create a space for children to live that is safe, tolerant, and compassionate. Acts of violence threaten us all, even when directed at specific groups," advocate the directors of the Amazing Tutors Children's Foundation.
The event was organized by the student volunteers of the Amazing Tutors Children's Foundation. We are grateful for everyone's support and encouragement in helping us build peace together. We seek to build communities by supporting youth and children through educational and volunteer opportunities in Surrey, BC. We involve our students and tutors in various programs, such as the leadership youth program. We need more people to join us.
