For two years I lived in Boston. I prayed for her then. I pray for her still.
Yesterday’s events are tragic and unthinkable for most of us. Lives were changed forever. My gratitude goes out to the first responders, the police, fireman, EMTs, doctors, nurses, hospital staff, clergy, and bystanders, who help offer comfort and aid in times like these. My prayers go out to the victims, their families, and the bomber(s). This world can be a place of hope, love, and opportunity; they have watched it become a place of fear, hate, and death. May God help them see the world once again through His eyes, as a place and people He loved so dearly that He would send His Son as a sacrifice for our failures. May we lift up those affected in Boston and around the world and be a beacon in the darkness that now engulfs them. May we encourage them as they begin to face the new reality they find themselves in. May we give of ourselves and our resources to alleviate their suffering. May we share love!
Hatred stirs up dissension, but love covers over all wrongs.
