I join President Obama in condemning the outrageous acts of senseless violence carried out by a few misguided individuals. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family and loved ones of U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and the others who lost their lives in the service of our country. As we continue to commemorate the events of September 11, 2001, it is important that the rest of the world know that America is united, acts against our people will not be tolerated, and we will stand up for human rights throughout the world.
Thank you to all of those who participated in the New York State Senate's fist ever online Town Hall. Since we're always striving to serve the people of New York better, and this was our first attempt at an event like this, we would appreciate your feedback on how we can improve the experience.
