Rep. West Statement on Shooting in Newtown, CT

(WASHINGTON)—Congressman Allen West (R-FL) released this statement today regarding the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, CT:


“There are no words to express the unimaginable sorrow our nation feels today for the families of those who lost their children and loved ones. It is only through faith and prayer that we can ever make sense of the senseless, and I pray these parents and families will eventually find comfort knowing their children will have the eternal love of God’s embrace. As a nation we grieve for the loss of so many lives, and the loss of so much innocence. May God bless those souls who have come home to Him, and comfort those who feel their loss.”
