Michael Bennet, U.S. Senator for Colorado, released the following statement regarding the recent shootings at Fort Hood in Texas:
"My thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends of the victims of this senseless act of violence. An attack on any member of our military affects the entire community.
"Though nothing will ever alleviate the pain caused by this terrible tragedy, we must work to find answers to why this happened and how we can help prevent incidents like this from ever happening again."
