We grieve with the families and friends of the victims of Saturday’s horrific events. We condemn the hatred that exists in the fringes of our society. Pittsburgh is our home. The people in our home are wonderful, caring and represent the best of our homogeneous nation. We honor the work of our law enforcement, emergency services and volunteer community.
We pledge to continue our efforts on the side of prevention, employing best practices and evolving technology as we pray that one day we may realize better opportunities to avoid loss or harm.
