Today’s sadness following yesterday’s shocking Boston Marathon attack is palpable.


In an unimaginable act of terror, two bomb blasts, 12 seconds apart, rocked the finish line of the 117th running of the Boston Marathon Monday, killing at least three people, including an 8-year-old Dorchester boy, and wounding more than 140. It is difficult to comprehend the savagery and disregard for human life on display, resulting in the extensive loss of life and catastrophic injuries. We extend our sincere sympathies to all families and loved ones directly affected by this horrific event.
