THE WHITE HOUSE
Office of the Vice President
STATEMENT BY THE VICE PRESIDENT
Tipper and I were deeply saddened to learn that six firefighters gave their lives fighting a blaze in the Worcester community. As their colleagues do everyday and in every community all across America, they answered the call when it came -- willing to risk their own lives to protect those of others.
I ask the American people to join me in offering to the family, friends and colleagues of these brave individuals our prayers of support.
