Governor Mills on Six-Month Anniversary of Lewiston Shooting


Governor Janet T. Mills (D) issued the following statement today on the six month anniversary of the tragedy in Lewiston that claimed the lives of 18 people and injured more than a dozen others:

“Six months ago, the tightly woven fabric of Maine was torn apart by a horrific attack that robbed us of the lives of 18 people – our family, friends and neighbors – leaving an immense hole in the heart of our state and in the hearts of their families and the survivors hurt by wounds both seen and unseen,

“As we mark the six-month anniversary of this terrible tragedy, we reaffirm our love and support for Lewiston, for the victims and their families and for this precious place we call home, and we recommit ourselves to embracing and valuing one another, as imporant as we may be, as we search for happines in the short, blessed time we have here.  Our hearts are still healing and the road to healing is long, but we will continue to walk it together.’
