As we are all still in shock and grieving for our fallen and hurt neighbors, we embrace positive actions to begin the healing
We all have a story about how the events of last week affected us and changed us forever. The truth is that while most of us were quite shaken up, we were also very lucky to not be physically hurt, and for that we can be thankful.
We want to express our immense pride and gratitude for the bravery and heroism shown by our Boston neighbors who risked their own safety and rushed in to help those in most desperate need. They did this even though it would have been safer and “smarter” to run in the other direction. Some of the first responders were nurses and doctors who were runners finishing the marathon. They stopped and changed into scrubs and went right to work on the spot helping victims. We live in dangerous times but we also live amongst giants in spirit, compassion, and grit. Thank you all!
For those who were injured, now begins a long journey back to health and a new life with a diminished body. Spirits will need years to come back as well. And this journey will be expensive for every single one of them.
If you are able to give, please consider donating to help the victims. The “One Fund” will start accepting applications from victims on May 15th, and will run all summer.
