Gov. Perry: Texas Continues to Support Victims, Families, Military

Saturday, November 07, 2009

"I just had the opportunity to meet several victims of Thursday’s violent episode at Fort Hood sharing with them and their families the concerns and well wishes of Texans everywhere.I also thanked the hardworking doctors and nurses here at Scott & White for their tireless efforts to save lives.The passage of two days since the violent outburst on Fort Hood has done little to dull the feelings each of us has about the incident.To those whose lives have been shaken by this isolated incident you need to know that it communicates less about the safety of our society or the condition of the human soul and much, much more about the way people look out for their neighbors in trying times."
