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.
