So our thoughts are with those who were wounded in pursuit of the suspects and we pray for their full recovery.”

Before the President closed, he made sure to remind the people of that community that they hadn’t been forgotten.”

“Our thoughts, our prayers are with the people of West, Texas, where so many good people lost their lives; some lost their homes; many are injured; many are still missing,” he said. “I’ve talked to Governor Perry and Mayor Muska and I’ve pledged that the people of West will have the resources that they need to recover and rebuild.
