ATLANTA, GA... Rosalynn and I extend our sympathy and condolences to the families and friends of victims of this terrible tragedy, which has left so many of our fellow Americans dead or injured. We urge everyone to assist and pray for those in need.

We are a strong and resilient people and country, and our history proves our will and ability to respond even to extreme emergencies. Those responsible for these cowardly acts must be brought to justice. Rosalynn and I join all our citizens in supporting President Bush during this crisis.
