I am still saddened by the events yesterday in Boston. My mind can’t come to grips with the fact that there are hateful people in this world who want to destroy other people’s happiness and lives. So I am trying to focus on the ways that everyone in this town is coming together. The city is tighter than ever, and the outpouring of shared feelings of grief, compassion and community is overwhelming. People have been donating blood and having vigils. Raising money for the families of the victims. Planning walks together in a show of solidarity. In some of the darkest times, we have the brightest moments of humanity. And this is the solace that we can take with us as we face the future.
