U.S. Rep. Nick Rahall (D-W.Va.) released the following statement on the tragedy at the Boston Marathon:

"The cowardly and senseless attack in Boston strikes at our Nation's heart and spirit as embodied by the marathon -- an event that welcomes all comers from all walks of life and challenges them to be their best. But the aftermath, in which countless individuals risked their lives to save others, has provided the people of Boston and all of us with assurances that good and right will ultimately prevail. Let us take comfort and find purpose in knowing that the full resources of our Nation will be devoted to finding the perpetrators of this attack and ensuring that justice is done."
