4/16/2013

Bernice A. King, chief executive officer of The King Center, made the following statement today about the bombings in Boston:

“I was shocked and saddened to learn of the bombings that have taken the lives of at least three people and injured at least 140 other people, including 8 children, in Boston. I ask everyone to pray for the victims of this violence and their families. We also pray for the day when these senseless acts of hatred and animosity will be a thing of the past. Although we don’t yet know who was responsible for this latest act of brutality, all Americans must join together in condemning the epidemic violence that has caused so much pain and suffering. We must work together with ever-increasing resolve to eliminate the sick culture of violence and to create a nonviolent society where all people can live together as sisters and brothers in peace and security.”
