McSally Remembers Jan. 8 on House Floor

Posted By on Thu, Jan 8, 2015 at 4:15 PM

U.S. Representative Martha McSally spoke on the House floor to mark the Jan. 8 four-year anniversary that killed six people and wounded 13 others. Her press office released the following statement:

"Four years ago, our community was shaken to its core by an act of senseless violence that took the lives of six of our own and wounded thirteen others. They were our friends, neighbors, and loved ones. Our community still carries the enduring pain of their loss but also the bright recollection of their lives and memories."

"We remember the victims and what they came to do that day: speak with their elected representative. We remember the selfless acts of bravery and love by those who put themselves in harm's way, even giving their own lives to save others. We remember how the city of Tucson came together, in grief and consolation, to move forward with a spirit of compassion and strength that was felt across the nation."

"Our thoughts and prayers continue to be with the family and loved ones of those lost or wounded, who carry the pain of what happened on that quiet Saturday each and every day. We are inspired by their courage; made stronger by their strength."

"Today, as the bells ring out from the University of Arizona and in the moments of silence that follow, our community, united and strong, proclaims with one voice: we will never forget those we lost."
