Los Angeles County Supervisor Don Knabe released the following statement Tuesday regarding the terror attack at the Boston Marathon:
"What happened [Monday] during the Boston Marathon was a senseless and cowardly act, aimed at shattering our feeling of security. My heart breaks for those who lost their lives yesterday, and for all those who were injured. Marathons are supposed to be events where we cheer on our family and friends as they try to accomplish something extraordinary - not places where we have to worry about the unthinkable.
"The events of yesterday are a true testament to our first responders: the men and women who run into chaos to save lives.
"Yesterday I saw endless accounts of first responders saving lives, and heroic citizens stepping in to assist those in need. Remember these stories. Remember the stories of marathon runners crossing the finish line and continuing to run to hospitals to donate blood.
"Please keep those who lost their lives and those fighting for their lives in your thoughts and prayers."
