American Red CrossApril 16, 2013
Our hearts go out to all of those involved in this senseless tragedy in Boston, as well as thoughts & prayers to those injured. I know we all ask ourselves “Why?” and at the same time wonder what we can do. The Red Cross is such an extraordinary organization. Growing up in a household with a father who was a Marine, the Red Cross was an honored and quite sacred organization. Involved in helping those across the globe, the American Red Cross is always one of the very first to spring into action when a tragedy like this strikes on our soil. The American Red Cross in Boston has a long history supporting the marathon, and even before the explosions had first aid stations and volunteers in place to assist the runners as they do each year. I will post a link to the statement they made last evening. Knowing many want to help, they ask that folks volunteer to give blood in the coming weeks and months. A monetary donation is always a welcome thing.
