“While Our Sorrow is Great, So Too is Our Resolve”

WASHINGTON – House Republican Conference Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) released the following statement today in response to the explosions after the Boston Marathon:

“It is with a very heavy heart that I express my condolences to the victims of today’s unspeakable tragedy in Boston. While our sorrow is great, so too is our resolve. We are committed to working with law enforcement agencies to ensure those responsible are held accountable. And we are committed to stopping these senseless acts of terror – both on U.S. soil and abroad – for there is nothing we take more seriously than the protection of American life. Today let us all come together as Americans – as moms and dads, brothers and sisters, children and grandparents – to pray for those whose lives were forever changed on this very sad day.”
