U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.) issued the following statement on the bombing attack during the Boston Marathon:
"My prayers and those of all Oklahomans are with those who lost loved ones and those who were injured after the malicious and cowardly attacks in Boston. We owe a debt of gratitude to our heroic first responders and others on the scene who in the midst of uncertainty rushed to help those in need.
"The tragic events in Boston come nearly 18 years to the day after the terrorist attack on the Alfred P. Murrah Building in Oklahoma City. These horrific events remind us all that we live in a dangerous world that requires us to remain vigilant in defending our country against threats both at home and abroad. Those who perpetrated this act of terror must be found and brought to justice."
