The Associated Press Media Editors share in the shock and sadness surrounding the horrific events at the Capital Gazette in Annapolis, Maryland. 
 
While much is still to be learned, the devastating loss of life, life-altering injury to some and the trauma the co-workers and community members must feel are in our hearts and on our minds.
 
We pledge our support in their recovery and support them in the means it takes to mend the hurt and loss. We will support these journalists  to  enable them to keep covering their community and standing for the values we all treasure – freedom of the press, an obligation to the truth, being on the frontline as a watchdog and a way for many to have a voice. We respect that journalists who follow this creed are human, have families, are a vital part of this great society and and are all too mortal. 
 
In the coming days, we hope to help in a concrete way to support the recovery, along with our partners in journalism leadership, including ASNE. Join us and, through your support, lift up our extended family at the Capital Gazette.
 
If you have wishes or ways to help, please email apme@ap.org.
