from National President David Holway
Today, most of us return to work and to school and to some kind of routine that makes us feel that life will slowly get "back to normal." We still feel intense pain and sorrow and anger over the loss of four promising young people and the suffering that continues for so many victims and their families. We also feel relief.
We take immense pride as a city and as a nation in the firefighters, police, EMTs and paramedics, doctors and nurses, and the citizen bystanders who saved lives at the marathon finish and continued to protect lives during the shootout and manhunt for the bombers.
Again today, when words seem inadequate to express the magnitude of our collective sorrow and the intense hopes we have for the recovery of the victims and families affected, we can show our support with action.
Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick and Boston Mayor Tom Menino have announced the formation of The One Fund Boston, Inc. to help the people most affected by the tragic events that occurred in Boston. NAGE Charities has already donated $2,620—a symbolic remembrance of the 26.2 miles of the marathon. I am asking all in the NAGE community to join us in supporting the victims with an online donation of $26.20 to the One Fund.
Please show your support. The ONE FUND Boston
