Congressman Brian Fitzpatrick (PA-01) issued the following statement on the terrorist attacks in Sri Lanka:

“The terrorist attacks on Easter Sunday in Sri Lanka targeting innocent civilians, including American citizens, are horrifying.  My heart breaks for the victims and families affected on the holiest day in the Christian faith. Violent hatred and extremism in all forms must be roundly condemned.  This massacre, and others our world has experienced, are contrary to the values of freedom and tolerance which Americans hold dear.  This Easter, let us send our prayers to Sri Lanka, take the teachings Scripture provides us, and strive to be the change our world so desperately needs.”
