World mourns

When tragedies occur, the leaders of the world respond.

"Schools should be places of safety and sanctuary and learning. When that sanctuary is violated, the impact is felt in every American classroom and every American community. Today, our nation grieves with those who have lost loved ones at Virginia Tech. We hold the victims in our hearts, we lift them up in our prayers, and we ask a loving God to comfort those who are suffering today."
-President Bush

"I would like to express, on behalf of Britain and the British people, our profound sadness at what has happened and to send the American people, and most especially of course the families of the victims, our sympathy and our prayers."
-Tony Blair, Prime Minister of Britain

"[Let me say] how saddened and shocked I am by the terrible shooting tragedy at Virginia Tech University in the United States. It is the worst mass shooting incident in the history of the United States and it is a dreadful event for the university, for those who've lost loved ones, and I, on behalf of the Australian Government and the Australian people extend my sympathy to the people of the United States, and particularly, to the families of those who've died at the hands of a crazed gunman."
- John Howard, Prime Minister of Australia

"Our thoughts are particularly turned towards that family of Mrs. Jocelyne Couture-Nowak, a Québécois teacher at this university's Department of Languages who lost her life in this dramatic incident. On behalf of the people of Quebec, I wish to address my sincerest condolences to the families and those closest to the victims that are part of the community of Virginia Tech. This is a tragedy of unimagineable violence, and it is necessary at this time to condemn with fortitude all forms of violence.
- Jean Charest, Prime Minister of Quebec

"I feel very much sorry and troubled, and any such rampant killing of innocent citizens and children is totally not acceptable and I condemn it in strongest terms possible."
- UN Secretary-General Ban-Ki Moon


"Chancellor Angela Merkel was shocked to hear of the mass shooting on a US university campus. She offered US President George W. Bush her condolences. "
- statement from the office of Angela Merkel, Chancellor of Germany


"We learned that a Canadian is among the victims in Virginia and Mr. Speaker, I can say that the prayers, thoughts and condolences of each and every one one us here in the House are with that family. It’s really almost impossible to comprehend why an individual would take his own life and that of so many others in this way but I think we can all say that our thoughts are with all of the victims, their family and the community."
- Stephen Harper, Prime Minister of Canada

"The president of the Republic has known with horror and consternation the shootings of Virginia University. He sent to President Bush, to the families of the victims and to American people his most saddened condolence and his complete solidarity, in the name of himself and French people."
- statement from the office of Jacques Chirac, President of France

"I and our people cannot contain our feelings of huge shock and grief. I pray for the souls of those killed and offer words of comfort from my heart for those injured, the bereaved families and the U.S. people."
- Roh Moo-hyun , President of South Korea


I will keep adding as I find more.

Bush's concern evidently doesn't extend to the thousands of victims of his wars in Iraq and Afghanistan…

I'm just waiting for Fred Phelps to give his praise for the shooter and hatred for the victims.

Anonymous said...

Indeed, the Phelps cult is on their way to Virginia right now.

I'm not a world leader, of course, by any means! However, I was horrified and wish to express my own sorrow at the deaths. Any attempts to politicize this or make snide remarks about expressions of sympathy are revolting to me. I will simply mourn with the mourners.

wtf "Jean Charest, Prime Minister of Quebec" grow up

The Scientologists are also on their way and some people are already seeing opportunism from extremist group such as Mr. Phelps and the Scientologists.

Anonymous said...

Some of these are oddly regionally specific. Like the Canadian leader who said "One Canadian was among the killed, this makes us sad" (paraphrasing).

It's a little selective.
