The creators of Harry Pierre & PeTunia Puddlesworth would like to send their condolences to the victims families, each Parisian citizen, and each French citizen for today's horrific acts on their homeland. Our country, the United States of America, suffered immeasurable pain 9/11 when we lost thousands of beloved Americans. Our citizens did not have to say a word when passing one another at a store, the post office, or even a street corner - we all knew what each other were feeling - a deep sorrow we had never experienced. We hugged each other with our eyes and held the precious families affected with this tragic loss in our hearts.

We felt no one would understand our pain, but us.

But we were wrong.

The world showed us all love, support, and encouragement in the days and weeks that followed. It helped us to reach deep down and pull out the patriotic camaraderie and strength we needed to heal our country - and it did.

May you get some comfort knowing you are being thought of during this emotional time, you are receiving blessings and/or well wishes from us all, and please know out of this pain, you will persevere, learn, and grow.

Like the victims of 9/11 - your brothers, sisters, mothers, fathers, wives, husbands, cousins, nieces, nephews, loved ones, and friends - they will never be forgotten, and forever will be a part of your country's history.

And not just us, Americans, but the world, will be remembering as well, and holding them close to our hearts.
