Ambassador Stevens’ death was a tragedy that we should condemn in the harshest terms. Violent protests should not be tolerated. But we can’t let the actions of a few blind us to the needs and the aspirations of the many striving for peaceful change. Families across the Middle East want the same things for their children as we do: a safe community, a good education, and the promise of a better future. These are ideals worthy of our unwavering support.

We at Mercy Corps join the global community in expressing our shock and sadness at his death.  Those who attacked Ambassador Stevens and his colleagues are not representative of the Libyan people, the vast majority of whom are working peacefully toward a better Libya.  This tragedy is a reminder that serious risks remain, but in our work we see the promise and the progress in Libya every day.  As Mercy Corps mourns this loss, we affirm our commitment to a more secure, productive, and just Libya, in the spirit of Chris Stevens’ incredible work.”
