I AM CRY
Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).
Examples of overwhelming kindness following the Boston Marathon explosions.
An undated classroom photo of Martin Richard, the youngest victim of the Boston Marathon bombings, shows him holding up a handwritten sign that reads “No more hurting people. Peace.” The photo was posted to Facebook by a friend of Martin’s teacher. He did not survive; his mother and sister were injured in the blasts. (Via Twitter.com/jaketapper)
“My dear son Martin has died from injuries sustained in the attack on Boston. My wife and daughter are both recovering from serious injuries. We thank our family and friends, those we know and those we have never met, for their thoughts and prayers. I ask that you continue to pray for my family as we remember Martin. We also ask for your patience and for privacy as we work to simultaneously grieve and recover. Thank you.” - Bill Richard
