Our Hearts Go Out to Boston

ImageOur hearts and minds are with those who attended the Boston Marathon today. And to the families and friends who will inevitably have their lives upended by the cruelty that occurred. 

Fred Rogers (may he rest in peace) said, “When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, ‘Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.'”  It makes us cry when we hear the stories of the helpers: the marathon runners who finished the exhausting race only to run to the hospital to donate blood, the people who have opened up their hearts and homes to those at the epicenter of this heartbreak. 

May we all find peace and love in this world – and may we do our best to move forward in kindness when everything seems upside down.
