Today U.S. Representative Richard Hudson (NC-08), Subcommittee Chairman on the House Homeland Security Committee, released the following statement following the bombings at the Boston Marathon:
"My thoughts and prayers are with the victims of this tragic attack. While we are awaiting more details about what certainly appears to be an act of terror, we do know the lives of those in Boston today are forever changed. During this time of fear and uncertainty, we must ensure that the bonds of community are stronger than ever, and that we assist the victims, their families, and the authorities in every way possible. Even in this darkest moment, the light of faith will guide us through the days of pain and anguish that are to follow."
