Statement by the President

A year ago, tragedy struck at the 117th Boston Marathon.  Four innocent people were killed that week, and hundreds more were wounded.  Today, we remember Krystle Campbell, Lingzi Lu, Martin Richard, and Sean Collier.  And we send our thoughts and prayers to those still struggling to recover.

 

We also know that the most vivid images from that day were not of smoke and chaos, but of compassion, kindness and strength: A man in a cowboy hat helping a wounded stranger out of harm’s way; runners embracing loved ones, and each other; an EMT carrying a spectator to safety.  Today, we recognize the incredible courage and leadership of so many Bostonians in the wake of unspeakable tragedy.  And we offer our deepest gratitude to the courageous firefighters, police officers, medical professionals, runners and spectators who, in an instant, displayed the spirit Boston was built on – perseverance, freedom and love.

 

One year later, we also stand in awe of the men and women who continue to inspire us – learning to stand, walk, dance and run again.  With each new step our country is moved by the resilience of a community and a city.  And when the sun rises over Boylston Street next Monday – Patriot’s Day – hundreds of thousands will come together to show the world the meaning of Boston Strong as a city chooses to run again.

Boston Marathon Bombing — The Hunt For Dzhokhar Tsarnaev

 

 

 

Boston and its surroundings braced for an emotional week that begins Tuesday with a large ceremony honoring the victims, first responders, medical personnel and others affected by the attack. It will be a chance to mourn the dead and remember the bloodshed, but also to proclaim that what is perhaps the world’s most famous footrace will continue for a 118th year, and to marvel at the way events have brought this community together.

 

“We’re going to turn it into a moment of unity and perseverance and [strength] as a city,” said Alison Beliveau, 25, of South Boston, who finished a run Monday morning outside Marathon Sports, where the first bomb went off one year ago. “We made it through. We’re going to make it.”

    Remembering and honoring!!! Senseless …

  2. Happy Passover to you! Pain is better except in my head.

    • Well you need some laughter, so….The Body Of Christ Compels You….The Body Of Christ Compels You….The Body Of Christ Compels You….The Body Of Christ Compels You….

      • Hahaha. Well you have got to stop watching that movie. Christ compels me and Elijah has gone missing. I missed having wine with our dinner. Doesn’t mix well with head injury. Did I tell you we got snow last night. Weather is crazy.

  3. As you always do, wonderfully done. I am stunned it has been a year. This was another terrible act that brought us together momentarily but tore us apart as well.

    • Yes the time flies so quickly. I am sick and tired of death.

      • Me also. I wish for something better, I wish for something that affirms us and affirms life. There are so many things I wish for, perhaps that is simply the female in me. It is certainly why I push through the Victim Impact program even when it is hard, I just want something better.
