Boston (November 23, 2015) – Senator Edward J. Markey (D-Mass.) released the following statement on the death of Sharon, Massachusetts native Ezra Schwartz, who was killed in an attack in Israel this week.
“A bright and shining light was put out far too soon when Ezra Schwarz was senselessly killed in an attack in Israel. Ezra was simply doing what so many young people do – traveling and learning more about what connects him to the people of the world. We mourn the loss of his life and the loss of potential of this young man who was deeply loved. My deepest condolences go out to his family, friends, and classmates.”
