Message from Linda M. Springer, Director, the U.S. Office of Personnel Management:
We express our sincere condolences, on behalf of the Federal Workforce, to the family of the Federal employee who was killed at the NASA Johnson Space Center Friday afternoon.
This latest tragedy at NASA, combined with the senseless Virginia Tech massacre and the grim anniversaries of the Columbine High School shootings and the deaths in the Federal Building in Oklahoma City remembered this week, have been difficult for all of us. These events remind us all of the need to be vigilant and to respect the security precautions taken in Federal buildings.
We ask all employees to remember the family of the NASA victim in our thoughts and prayers.
