Officer of Governor Bob McDonnell Press Release
"Tragedy has touched Americans again. This morning's terrible act of senseless violence in Aurora, Colorado reminds all of us how fragile life is. Today, our hearts are heavy for those who were killed, those who were wounded, their friends and family, and everyone in the Aurora community. We are praying for all the victims and their families. In this tough time I ask all Virginians to reflect upon those whom they love, and to remain vigilant about taking care of each other. Acts of despicable and inexplicable violence can never break the spirit of this resilient nation. America is a nation of good and caring people. And we will come together, as we always do, in the wake of this act of evil. Our thoughts, our prayers, our hearts, are with all those impacted by this horrific event."
