AHRC: Make September 11 a day of Unity and Renewal of Commitment to Core Values:
The American Human Rights Council (AHRC-USA) joins the nation in commemorating the 22nd anniversary of September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks and national tragedy.
The occasion falls amidst tremendous challenges facing the nation marked by a politically divided nation with rise of gun-violence crisis, climate-change, and economic challenges. Despite our divisions, what unites us is a lot bigger than what divides us. We have so many challenges that require mutual respect and unity.
On this day, AHRC promises to continue to defend, protect, promote, and advance the cause of human rights and the culture of human dignity and human respect for all. AHRC will continue to stand for a safe and free nation.
“Nations, just like individuals, are evaluated .by crises,” said Imad Hamad, AHRC Executive Director. “The 9/11 attacks were a test for the nation, whether it will live guided by its values or gripped by the fear and mistrust that its enemies inflicted on it,” added Hamad. “Terrorists should never be allowed to determine what constitutional and human rights the law abiding have,” concluded Hamad.
