HOUSTON—Governor Rick Perry gave a moving speech Wednesday, reminding us of the huge sacrifice the four firefighters made for our community.
Read the following excerpt:
“These are hard days, it is a painful day, but it is also a necessary day and it is our duty to honor these four individuals who are represented here. Four people who sacrificed everything in service of their community. It is our responsibility. It is our responsibility to offer what comfort we can to those who were closest to them, To convey to each of you our deepest sympathy. Along with the great pride that we have, the profound respect that we have for what your sons and daughters – your loved ones did – for us. It is also our time to send prayers of healing to their fellow firefighters who were injured in this fire. Especially, lift up Captain Dowling.”
