NEW: State Sen. Moore Issues Statement on Boston Marathon Bombings
Tuesday, April 16, 2013
"The tragic events that occurred at the finish line of the Boston Marathon on Monday are sobering, and my thoughts and prayers are with the families and friends of those who have been affected. The third Monday of every April marks a celebratory time for the Commonwealth and the City of Boston. It is a time that commemorates our patriotic history at Lexington and Concord. It is also a time that the nation and the world descend onto the city in the spirit of competition. Although this signature event in Boston was affected by acts of evil, it will not dampen the spirit of the city. Boston and the people of the Commonwealth are strong and resilient. Justice will be brought to those responsible and we shall overcome these events. The pride and excitement of every third Monday in April will not be diminished."
