Elizabeth Warren says she’s ‘never prouder than today’ to be from Boston

Calling the attacks “cowardly acts of terrorism,” she said she was buoyed by her conversations with those hurt in the blasts.

“I’m always proud to be from Massachusetts, but never prouder than today,” she said in a telephone interview. “The people I met with showed the strength and resilience that marks Boston.”

She said she was moved that even people with significant injuries were focused on when they could get back to work.

Warren said she met one young woman at Brigham who “was clearly badly injured,” but the woman was already “focused on when she would be up and working, just like the city of Boston.”

The senator, who took the oath of office in January, said she was also extremely impressed by the staff at the hospital -- from doctors to “the people fixing the food and keeping the hallways clean.”
