In solidarity

I am from New England, not far from the city of Boston. Since yesterday afternoon, we have been glued to the TV with tears in our eyes and saddened hearts. We spent the afternoon trying to connect
with our daughter and her family, praying for their safety. Thankfully, they are all safe.
Hard to be far in such times, even in beautiful Amelia.

 Be strong, dear Boston, old Friend.

Our prayers are with all the victims and with the grieving families.  This is a cowardly deed, and we pray that somehow somewhere such perpetrators may open their eyes to goodness instead of evil and these actions will stop.  It may be hard to imagine, but surely we have to hope against hope.  Meanwhile, vigilance and support of the innocents who have and still do suffer, no matter where they are in this world must be our common task...
