Mr. Speaker: Earlier today two explosions tore through the finish line of the Boston Marathon, according to the Boston Police Department.
These blasts have so far reportedly resulted in several deaths and perhaps more than 100 injuries.

Mr. Speaker, when faced with such adversity, now is a time for the American people to come together with their thoughts and prayers for those who have been injured and those lives that have been so tragically lost.

My thoughts and prayers are also with the Boston fire, rescue and emergency medical personnel that as I speak are still on the job.

My thoughts and prayers are also with the Boston Police and investigators that they will quickly determine who is responsible for what appears to be a cruel, senseless and cowardly act.

Today marks the 238th annual Patriot's Day in Boston.

Mr. Speaker, let it be known that the evil that transpired today will not deter the courage of American Patriots from the past, the present or the future.

I yield back.
