We are heartbroken for the people of New Zealand and the families and friends of those who were killed in the tragic shootings at two mosques in Christchurch New Zealand. We condemn bigotry in any form and want to express our profound concern and sympathy to our Muslim colleagues.
At Woods we celebrate the things that make us different. Acceptance and understanding of those differences is critically important to creating a safe and comforting home for our clients and work environment for us.
Many of us are feeling shaken by this tragedy as we realize this can happen anywhere. We wish you peace and comfort in the days ahead as we learn more about what drove these people to commit this horrific act and hear the stories of those whose lives ended much too soon.
Let’s be sure to offer extra support for those around us who are may be struggling with this or any other situation. We are “Woods Strong.”
