Second Anniversary of the Mumbai Terrorist Attacks

As the people of the United States gather with family to celebrate Thanksgiving, we pause to remember the horrific attack on innocent men, women, and children that occurred in Mumbai two years ago. Now, as then, the American people stand in solidarity with the people of India and honor those who lost their lives. President Obama's recent visit to India underscored our nations’ shared belief in liberty, democracy, and mutual respect for all people. As the people of Mumbai gather in temples, mosques, churches, gurdwaras, and synagogues to honor those who perished on November 26, 2008, they send a message of resolve, resilience, and mutual respect that is far louder and more powerful than any terrorist's guns and bombs.
