Binghamton Community Rallies Around Boston Marathon Bombing Victims with Letters of Love
I'm sitting here with tears in my eyes. I'm numb. I don't know what to think or say or do. My heart aches. I feel like I've been punched in the stomach. And this is just one family's story.
Several news outlets are confirming that Martin Richard, an 8-year-old boy from Dorchester is the little boy who's life was taken yesterday in the Boston Marathon Bombings.
Apparently this little angel had gone out to hug his dad after he crossed the finish line. The dad walked on; the boy went back to the sidewalk to join his mom and his little sister. And then the bomb went off. The boy was killed. His sister’s leg was blown off. His mother suffered a serious injury to the brain.
Do you remember how we wrote Letters of Love for Sandy Hook? Well, I think it's time to do Letters of Love again. I think it's time for us to write letters of love, hope and encouragement to those who were injured and to those who lost loved ones.
If you'll just take a minute to fill out the form below, I'll hand write your Letter of Love and make sure it gets to the right people so it can be passed along to those hurting the most. Or, if you'd prefer you can mail a handwritten letter to me you can send it to:
