A message to the greater UNL community and family

Sadly, the awful events in the last week once again have reminded us that among many good people in our society are some who would do harm to others. As we grieve with the families of those who have been taken from us in recent days, we must continue our search for peace.

Whether it is black men killed by police officers, police officers killed while they protect those engaging in peaceful demonstration or a gunman shooting into a nightclub in Florida, we must condemn horrific acts in our search for peace. We must defeat hate and those who may seek to divide us through hate.
