Statement from Dr. David Swann on the tragic bombings in Brussels

Edmonton, AB (March 22, 2016): The events unfolding in Brussels today are tragic and horrifying. My thoughts and prayers go out to the victims, the victims’ families and all those whose lives will never be the same for having been witness to these terrible acts.

Terrorism strikes at the heart of our humanity, making us afraid of the unfamiliar and separating us from one another. It is my deepest hope that this intent will backfire and such heinous acts will, instead, unite us in opposition against those who would use murder as a political tool.
