Today, Representative Steven Horsford (NV-4) released the following statement in honor of Michael Brown, Jr.:
"My thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of Michael Brown, Jr. He was tragically taken from them, and America is in mourning. Today was about remembering a young man who had his whole life ahead of him. It was an incredibly powerful service in which a city, and a nation, came together as one to stand for justice. We will use our faith to overcome the pain we feel now, and use our energy to ensure that justice prevails for Michael Brown Jr. and his family. I am proud that we have such strong and passionate leaders from across the country that rallied attention here in St. Louis and Ferguson, Missouri."
