Arthur Lawler said his daughter would likely be in the hospital for another two or three days and may require additional surgery; but for the most part, he acknowledged she was luckier than many of those injured.
“The terrorists don’t care, they’re just sending a message that they are there. It’s an ideal setting for a terrorist attack. My daughter has been traumatized, she’s angry, but she’s a survivor. She just hopes they find the people responsible,” Arthur Lawler said.
