As Vince so aptly put, “Anyone who runs Boston forgets the pain of the race, and remembers the kindness of those good people who welcomed us.” I too have been trying to process the horrific scenes of the bombings at the Boston Marathon which have been crossing my computer screen over the past 48 hours. There are no words to describe the cruelty that unfolded there. Nor are there words to adequately describe the outpouring of compassion that has come of it. If these terrorists were attempting to divide us, their efforts have failed.
All over the nation people are finding ways to support those affected by these tragic events. There are many ways. For me, this will come in the way of a blood donation. How will you help?
