Senator Jay Rockefeller released the following statement on the explosions today during the Boston marathon.
"I'm deeply saddened about the explosions today during the Boston marathon. Sharon's and my thoughts and prayers are with the runners, volunteers, spectators, and their families and friends. While all the details of the explosions are not yet available, we can be clear that this was an absolutely senseless act, and those behind it will be brought to justice. In the face of such fright, we know that our nation once again comes together to support those in need -- whether for those who lost a family member or friend, for those who are injured, or for those in shock from this terrible event. We will always stand together."
