"The terrorist attacks in France have shocked peace-loving people around the world. We hope and pray that those families and friends who have lost loved ones are comforted, and that Parisians recover from this violent and tragic episode. We stand ready to assist our 35 ASTA members who are based in and around the Paris area any way we can. With heavy hearts we pray today for peace and the safety of our friends in France and those affected by this horrific attack."
