We believe that peace among people of all faiths, ways, and traditions is possible, and we affirm a process of reconciliation to achieve this goal.
We gather and walk in peace from a Jewish site to a Muslim site. We lament the loss of innocent life, especially children, as a result of political or economic oppression, any form of terrorism or violence in the name of religion. We pray for the safety and freedom of all people who suffer the horrors of violence.
Rather than despair, we choose to embrace hope and to promote a process of compassionate dialogue and action. As people with faith, we place our trust not in military might or acts of violence but in loving kindness to pursue justice as a true pathway to peace.
Our coming together as a community here in Tucson is witness to our belief that peace is possible. We call for alternatives to military or violent solutions to the problems in the Middle East and elsewhere in the world. Our walk is a prayer for the hopes of the people of Israel and Palestine and all of the world for peace, security, justice and freedom.
Let us call out Shalom
