“…we will find out who did this; we’ll find out why they did this. Any responsible individuals, any responsible groups will feel the full weight of justice.”
-President Barack Obama
- If you are still searching for someone you can check Safe and Well .
- The Mass. Emergency Agency has said if you are trying to contact someone to text instead of calling, as the systems are overloaded and it will use less bandwidth.
- The Red Cross has advised they had enough blood for the people injured and aren’t in need of more.
- If you are in Boston or the surrounding areas, I urge you to check out this spreadsheet with people who are offering places to stay for those displaced by the bombings. Use it to find a place or offer a place.
For all my friends, family, and readers in the area my heart goes out to you. Stay safe everyone.
Tragedy should be utilized as a source of strength. No matter what sort of difficulties, how painful experience is, if we lose our hope, that’s our real disaster.
-Dalai Lama XIV
