|Our Thoughts Are With Boston

[Tue, April 16, 2013] "When evil men plot, good men must plan. When evil men burn and bomb, good men must
build and bind. When evil men shout ugly words of hatred, good men must commit themselves to the glories of love"
~Martin Luther King, Jr.
The death toll in the bombings at the Boston Marathon
on a horrific afternoon of April 15th, 2013 has risen to three. Over 100 people have been injured, many of whom are in critical
condition. The horrid blast was so powerful that it blew out shop windows and damaged a window on the third floor of the Central
Library in Copley Square, which was closed to the public for Patriots’ Day. The blasts were about 50 to 100 yards apart,
reported CNN, on a stretch of the marathon course lined with spectators cheering runners through the final yards of a 26-mile,
385-yard endurance feat.
thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families, with the entire people of Boston, and with all the marathon
participants following these tragic events. There are no words that can fully express the grief and the grave feeling of loss. I trust that justice will be served and that evil will be defeated.
