Weekly Republican Address: Speaker Boehner on the Tragedy in Aurora, Colorado (Transcript)




"“Hello, I’m John Boehner, Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives.

My plan today was to share some thoughts with you about the economy. But life, they say, is what happens when you’re busy making other plans.

There is still so much, too much, to sort out about the tragedy in Aurora, Colorado. Words cannot capture the horror, or make sense of something so senseless. So I won’t try.

This much I know.

I know that when confronted with evil we cannot comprehend, Americans pull together and embrace our national family more tightly.

We join President Obama in sending condolences and prayers to the loved ones of those who were killed and wounded. And we all say ‘thank God’ for the police, the first responders, the doctors, and the nurses whose swift and heroic efforts saved lives.

At a time like this, we count our blessings. And as we do, we come to be reminded that the depth of our grief also reveals the depth of our love and our resolve.

Scripture tells us that the faith that sustains us is ‘the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen.’ We may not yet see or fathom comfort for the mourning, but we’ll stand by them and we’ll stand together, as one nation, in the difficult hours that lie ahead.

May God bless the grieving families – and yours. And may God continue to bless the United States of America.

Thank you."
