Himes Statement on Newtown School Shooting

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Congressman Jim Himes (CT-4) released the following statement regarding the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School this morning:

"Words cannot express the sadness and horror I feel at the horrendous shootings in Newtown. As father to two young girls, I don't know how life would go on after the murder of my child or one of their teachers. But if community means anything, the children of Sandy Hook Elementary School are our children, as were the children of Columbine, Virginia Tech, and Aurora. I hope and pray that the flood of sympathy and condolences offered to the victims and survivors of this unspeakable crime will ignite the dedication and ingenuity of our nation to end this scourge of violence."
