Mayor Rahm Emanuel called Boston Mayor Thomas Menino after the Boston Marathon explosions Monday to “convey support from the people of Chicago,” according to a statement.
In the statement, Emanuel said, “During this time of tragedy and uncertainty, the people of Boston are in our thoughts and prayers.
“The running of the Boston Marathon and Patriots Day are time-honored traditions. While the details of today’s tragedy are still unclear, one thing was immediately known: the patriotism and professionalism of public servants and first responders. Our hearts go out to the first responders, runners, volunteers and spectators in Boston today.”
