In the wake of the Boston Marathon bombings a fund was created called The One Fund. Money raised by this fund will go to help the people most affected by the tragic events that occurred in Boston on April 15, 2013.
Boston has a long (and fairly well deserved reputation) for being a cold city; tough to meet people especially if you are not from the area. I’ve often countered this painfully truthful observation that friendships once made here are rock solid and for many last a lifetime. Reactions from the community have helped validate how meaningful personal relationships are here in Boston. I don’t want to dwell on the tragedies from this year’s marathon, but I do want to say thank you to all who have donated money or time to help those afflicted.
