Like people from around the world, our staff watched in horror as news broke yesterday about the bombing at the Boston Marathon. Our immediate response was to contact our families and friends who may have run in the race or live in the Boston area and to reassure our children.
Sadly, this senseless act of terror will affect thousands of families from around the world for a lifetime. Our thoughts and prayers are with the families who lost loved ones and the over 100 innocent victims who were seriously injured. As more details of the event unfold, we are hopeful that the perpetrator is caught and brought to justice.
Once again, we are forwarding information that may be helpful. Feel free to pass the information along to your family and friends who may benefit from the resources. As always, contact our office at 203-966-3911 if we can be of any assistance.
