Dear American Rotarians and all American friends:
I am writing to you on behalf of all members of our Rotary club. That horrible events shocked us. It is hard to believe that such can happen now and so many people suffered. We are praying for those who were injured, hurt or perished and for all their families. We are mourning with you. We wish speedy recovery to those who survived. Please know that we are with you in our thoughts. We hope you haven't lost anyone who was dear to you and whom you loved. May God be with you.
Rotary Club of Rostov on Don
