WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Michael McCaul (R-Texas) released the following statement on the anniversary of the Boston Marathon bombing.

Chairman McCaul: “As we look back to the tragedy that took place a year ago today, I cannot help but remember the heroism on display in Boston that day and the resilience of its citizens every day since. I remember walking through Boston and the streets of Watertown with officials who risked their lives to save countless others, and who prevented another potential plot in New York City. While some wounds may never heal completely, it is the selflessness and bravery of those who ran towards the blasts to help their fellow citizens, instead of away, who give us hope and strength moving forward. My thoughts and prayers go out to the families of the victims of the Boston Marathon bombing, and to the survivors who continue to inspire us all. And as we look forward to the race next week, the entire country is cheering for Boston.”
