As details of the horrific events at the Boston Marathon Monday afternoon continue to come in, we send our thoughts and prayers out to the victims and their families, and the people of Boston. We join Americans in grieving for lives that were lost, and for those that were wounded. We thank the brave Americans that thought of their neighbor first and sought to help victims in any way possible. We thank our first responders who, once again, began working diligently to help victims and ensure the safety of everyone they could. Once again pictures and stories of the triumphant patriotic American spirit are emerging and we are encouraged to see the unity and cooperation of all people in the after math of this tragedy.
This terrorist attack is yet another cowardly act against innocent Americans. We strongly condemn these actions and hope our President, Congress, and law enforcement will use all means available to bring the perpetrators to justice. A recent article from FoxNews.com indicates that authorities have a person of interest in custody:
“A source close to the investigation confirms to FoxNews.com the man whose apartment was searched is considered a person of interest in the case, and is the same person of interest Fox News confirmed earlier authorities are guarding at a local hospital. The source confirmed to FoxNews.com that the person of interest is Abdul Rahman Ali Alharbi, a 20-year-old Saudi. His Facebook page identifies him as a current or former student at the New England School of English. He is believed to have entered the country on a student visa.”
