I have always considered Boston to be a gem of history and culture. As my hometown, the city is my family retreat, a place to restore and begin fresh. My favorite nickname for Boston is “Beantown”. I have seen this city weather (literally) many storms. The tragedy at the Boston Marathon left me feeling dazed and dismayed. My family and I have been praying for all those who were so negatively impacted by the senseless actions that have transpired this week. I am deeply grateful to the law enforcement community for their heroic handling of these events. I pray for Peace as the people of Boston begin to sing, dance, and cheer again… Inspiring!
