House Republican Conference Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) released the following statement regarding the terrorist attack on a nightclub in Orlando.
“Every man, woman, and child in this country deserves the basic comfort of knowing they’re safe from terror in their own community,” said Cathy McMorris Rodgers.
“Terrorism anywhere is cowardly and devastating, but when it happens at home – in our own backyard – it leaves us with emotions and worries that, as a free and prosperous society, we never think we’ll be forced to face. ‘It could have been my brother, my sister, my friend.’ ‘It could have been me.’
“This is a time for Americans of all walks of life to lean on one another, to pray together, and to lift each other up. We are all neighbors, and we are all in this together. Everyone involved and their loved ones are in my prayers today.”
“Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.” Matthew 5:4
