LITTLE ROCK, AR- Senator Mark Pryor has released a reaction to the bombing at the Boston Marathon:
"My thoughts and prayers go out to my fellow Americans who were affected by yesterday’s senseless violence in Boston.
I want to thank the first responders, law enforcement, and servicemen and women who risked their lives to care for those who were injured.
This attack is a stark reminder that we live in a dangerous world.
While it’s impossible to prevent every tragedy, it’s imperative that we do everything possible to give our nation the resources it needs to protect and defend our citizens.
As a senior member of the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, I am committed to doing everything within my power to make our country safer.
Today I want to send a message to the individual or group who did this—America does not take this lightly.
We will use the same perseverance and determination that we used with Bin Laden to find and bring you to justice."
