VFW Statement on Boston Bombing
'As a nation, we cannot allow our great ability to heal to also become a liability'
April 16, 2013
"Most folks will never experience the euphoria of
crossing a finish line, but we can all share in the grief and anger that
yesterday’s tragic terror bombing of the Boston Marathon produced. Our hearts
and prayers are with Boston and our friends, families and visitors who came to
celebrate Patriots’ Day and tremendous human
achievement, but who now leave wounded inside and out, or worse. As a nation,
we cannot allow our great ability to heal to also become a liability. Our
resiliency must not turn into complacency, because America’s enemies will
neither forgive, forget or stop. The Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United
States fully supports our nation’s law enforcement officials who will bring
those responsible for this senseless and cowardly act to justice."
