Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC –  Congressman Raja Krishnamoorthi released the following statement in response to the attack in Las Vegas:

"I condemn in the strongest terms the violence and carnage we witnessed in Las Vegas. As our nation processes this senseless violence, I’m reminded of Fred Rogers’ advice to find hope even in the darkest of times. In any tragedy, he urged us, ‘look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.’ The courage and bravery shown by police and first responders is a beacon of hope amidst a scene of unimaginable devastation.

In the wake of this tragedy, I hope we’ll all be able to take the time to look for the helpers and that each of us, in our own way, will seek to help our nation heal, move forward, and work to prevent similar tragedies."
