In the aftermath of the horrific Boston Marathon bombings, the leaders and people of Boston have proven their patriotic spirit with strength, resilience and unity.

Together, we have extended our collective concern and condolences to the victims and families of this attack. Together, we condemn these attacks, but we also refuse to be intimidated into abandoning our hard-won freedoms and civil liberties.

We applaude and thank the brave first responders, medical professionals, elected leaders, law enforcement officials, and countless ordinary people who reacted with extraordinary valor and competence to aid the wounded.

Especially on Patriots Day, when we honor the founding of our nation and its democratic ideals, their courage inspires and reminds us that our nation, our Commonwealth and our city are strongest when we are led by principles that unite our communities and keep us both safe and free.
