Today our hearts go out to the people of Boston and to everyone who has been affected by this senseless tragedy. We are shaken by its violence, but we are also overwhelmed by its flood of reactionary kindness. From the people who have generously offered to open their homes to affected runners to Google’s Person Finder that has helped reconnect so many separated family members and friends to restaurants offering free food, Wi-Fi and cellphone charging stations, we are truly a strong community of people capable of shining light in the face of darkness.
We were especially taken by a statement made by Actor and Comedian Patton Oswalt: “…when you spot violence, or bigotry, or intolerance, or fear or just garden-variety misogyny, hatred or ignorance, just look it in the eye and think, ‘The good outnumber you, and we always will.'”
Band together with us and show what a strong community we are; if you are a Floridian, please share this graphic and show your support today.
