WASHINGTON, April 20 /Christian Newswire/ -- Concerned Women for America (CWA) extends its condolences to personnel at Virginia Tech and the whole Blacksburg area following Monday's on-campus shootings.
Mrs. Beverly LaHaye, Founder and Chairman of CWA, said, "Our hearts go out to the families of those who were lost in the tragedy of this week. We will continue to work to reverse the disintegration of American culture which is so evident in incidences like Columbine and now Virginia Tech."
Wendy Wright, President of CWA, said, "We mourn with those who know and love the victims at Virginia Tech, those who lost their lives and are struggling to hold on to life. May you be comforted in this dark night of grief by the loving God Who walks with us in the valley of the shadow of death. And may you find His embrace firm enough to bring you into the dawn of morning."
Janice Shaw Crouse, Director and Senior Fellow of CWA's Beverly LaHaye Institute, said, "We express our heartache for the families of those personally affected by the tragedy at Virginia Tech. America can no longer ignore the cultural pollution that endangers our children and puts us all at risk. It is unnerving and frightening to acknowledge the prevalence of a complete disregard for human life and the prevailing attitude that anyone can take out his or her personal grievance on innocent people. The abuses of individual freedom are destroying democracy and endangering the lives of us all."
CWA will observe a moment of prayer for the victims and their families today at 12:00 pm ET in response to the invitation of Virginia Governor Tim Kaine.
