"Once again, our world has endured another senseless tragedy due to the cowardly acts of truly evil people, but the global community remains united," Governor Cuomo said. "New York stands shoulder to shoulder with the people of Belgium and the rest of the world in rejecting the hate and extremism behind this violence. As we have seen time and again, when we are united, terror has never prevailed and never will. Tonight, One World Trade Center will be displayed in black, yellow and red as we stand in solemn solidarity with the people of Belgium, just as they have done for us in the past. We join the world in mourning the victims of these attacks and remain committed to helping create a more just and peaceful world."
