For Boston Marathon Victims: Our Prayers and Our Solidarity.

Tuesday, April 16th, 2013

“Our hearts, thoughts and prayers go out to the victims of yesterday’s attack at the Boston Marathon.  The loss of innocent life – in but a quick moment – is most devastating to those victims’ immediate families.  The severe and life-threatening injuries to many others is so heartrending.  In addition, the witnessing of this by thousands more causes a somber tone over an entire city and far beyond.  For New Yorkers, these assaults evoke traumatic memories, and so our solidarity is even greater as we offer our prayerful support to those in Boston in the aftermath of this tragedy.”
