NAD Responds to Violence in Charlottesville

The North American Division of the Seventh-day Adventist denomination posted a news story about the recent racial violence in Virginia (link). The article begins:

Tragedy struck the city of Charlottesville, Virginia, on Aug. 12, 2017, when demonstrators at a white nationalist rally, after a day of protests and clashes, were hit by the car of an Ohio man whom authorities claim held radical views. Thirty-two-year-old Heather Heyer was killed; according to news reports, nine pedestrians were injured in the crash with injuries ranging from minor to life-threatening.
The local Adventist churches are working together to help with the healing process.
