Irwin Keller, a member of the Commonweal community wrote:

In the wake of the terrible event in Orlando, a beloved colleague, a Muslim leader of our "Of One Soul" interfaith coalition, wrote his sorrow to me today, and sent this poem by 13th Century poet Sa'adi. It is a poem inscribed at the main gate of the UN:

The sons of Adam are limbs of each other,
Having been created of one essence.
When the calamity of time affects one limb
The other limbs cannot remain at rest.
If you have no sympathy for the troubles of others,
You are unworthy to be called by the name of a Human.
