April 15, 2014

(Manchester, NH)- U.S. Senator Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) released the following statement on the one-year anniversary of the Boston Marathon Bombings:

"I'll never forget the shocking violence that struck Boston a year ago, but I'll also never forget what we saw in the aftermath - the courage of our first responders and the resiliency of a city struck by tragedy. We can never thank enough all those who helped Boston recover from the horrors of that day – the first responders, both law enforcement and medical, and the countless number of volunteers who banded together to help a community during one of its most vulnerable times. All of these men and women, along with the victims, their families, and their loved ones, are in my thoughts today."
