Speaker Boehner Statement on Events in Boston


Apr 15, 2013

Washington
- House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) today issued the following statement after ordering flags over the United States Capitol to be lowered to half-staff out of respect for the victims of the Boston Marathon tragedy:

“Words cannot begin to express our sorrow for the families who are grieving so suddenly right now.  The House of Representatives offers its prayers to the victims and the city of Boston.   We also give thanks for the professionals and Good Samaritans who prevented further loss of life.  This is a terrible day for all Americans, but we will carry on in the American spirit, and come together with grace and strength.”
