Dear Mr. President,
The Australian government and people share the sense of horror experienced by
your nation at today's catastrophic events and the appalling loss of life. I
feel the tragedy even more keenly being here in Washington at the moment.
In the face of an attack of this magnitude, words are always inadequate in conveying
sympathy and support. You can however be assured of Australia's resolute solidarity
with the American people at this most tragic time.
My personal thoughts and prayers are very much with those left bereaved by these
despicable attacks upon the American people and the American nation.
