"Hope and Healing For A Century"

Dear Friends and Supporters,

The horrific events in Boston remind all of us of both our vulnerability and our capacity for resilience and personal heroism. Our hearts go out to those injured in the blasts and the loved ones of those who died. In addition, we applaud the courage of those civilians and professionals who responded selflessly in the moments after the blast in an attempt to help others.
