Warren, Ohio – Congressman Tim Ryan made the following statement regarding last night’s terrorism attack in an Orlando, Florida nightclub:
"I am shocked and dismayed by last night’s horrific news. My thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families and friends. Although we don’t yet know all the details, and in the coming days and weeks there will be a full and thorough investigation, what is clear is that these individuals were targeted because of who they are and who they love. We must do everything in our power to stamp out these cowardice acts of terrorism and we must not feed the negative energies of hate and intolerance. I don’t want this to become the new normal. I don’t want to raise my family in a world filled with fear and uncertainty."
