Your Voices: The Midland Train Accident

A tragic accident along a parade route at an event set to honor veterans in Midland, TX yesterday leaves 4 dead, many wounded, and a community in mourning.

See the full story from the Dallas/Ft. Worth NBC affiliate here.

Gov. Rick Perry issued the following statement this morning:

“The tragedy of yesterday’s train incident transcends the community who gathered to honor those who have given so much in service to their country. Their collective grief is being shared by Americans across this country as we mourn those who were lost. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the victims and their families, and our hearts remain with the community as they began to heal.”
