This week has been a shock to our world, as terrorist attacks left hundreds dead, even more wounded, and entire nations in mourning. On Thursday, November 12th, Lebanon’s capital Beirut was hit by a tragic double-suicide bombing. The next day, France’s capital Paris was targeted. Both attacks resulted in carnage and agony.
Armenian Association of Social workers expresses its solidarity with the people of Lebanon and France, and thinks especially of those who have lost and those who worked and continue to work to provide much needed support. AASW believes in the power of social work to uphold values of democracy, solidarity, and compassion at times like this.
We hope for the nations of our world to look towards a peaceful future, even in these darkest of days.
