M is for Marathon (as in Boston Marathon, April 2013)

This quote by David Meyer sums up the feelings of us all about the tragic events in Boston on April 15, 2013.

I ran the Boston Marathon for 10 straight years.  I didn’t run today.  But over the past decade, I have witnessed close up — over and over again, the strength, the beauty and the determination at the heart of the human spirit.  And those are the very qualities which we must all call upon now to help transcend the utter horror of today, and continue, each in our own, quiet ways, to express the goodness implanted at the core of our souls.  May God grant comfort to the mourners, healing to the wounded, and the strength of faith to us all.   David Meyer, Senior Rabbi at Temple Emanu-El, Marblehead, MA

The following encouraging words were posted by Stella Carolyn on her blog.

Boston...peace

Strength. Love. Peace. Resilience. Boston. You will recover, but you will remember. Our thoughts and prayers go out to those killed or wounded, as well as to all the runners and supporters of the Boston Marathon.
