U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (FL-23) released the following statement today on the explosions at the end of the Boston Marathon:
"My thoughts and prayers are with the people of Boston on this Patriots' Day. Boston is a significant, historical city that was at the forefront of the birth of America and our way of life. Its people are incredibly strong and we stand with them today united and ready to help the families and friends of the victims.
"The Boston Marathon is an incredible milestone for the thousands who run in it each year, and it's a horrible tragedy that a day of celebration turned into an unthinkable nightmare. There are still many unanswered questions about why this happened, and hopefully with time we will find answers. My condolences to the families who lost loved ones today, and I hope for a speedy recovery for those physically injured and for the healing of the greater Boston community."
