  1. Grace and peace to all of you. Gladys Fortuna-Blake, BUSTh 1991, M.Div. My heart is so heavy for the evil that has surfaced; that a community in which I was empowered to serve Christ, was so terribly hurt! Our response must be continued devotion to our LORD, and seeing what painful destruction evil brings, to me vigilant, yet caring. Having located my BU sweatshirt, I shall proudly wear it, with my shoulders squared, my chin up, and my piece of my heart in that beautiful city of love, study, deep thought and tender spirit.

  2. It is sad to think that in time, the rest of the world will move on and people will go about their daily lives like nothing happened, but we know that the victims of the blast will forever live with the physical and mental pain, scarred for life. Some may even say that those who passed away are the ones who are lucky. Those three who died were all good people. No one had to die on such a happy day.

    Although I agree that “good triumphs over evil,” as we saw in the actions of the first responders, I don’t particularly agree to that particular bible verse.

    We are going to find the person(s) responsible, and when we do, I secretly wish for some terrible evil done to whomever responsible.

  3. I remember going to just such a service after 9-11 with Bob Hill at Asbury first UMC in Rochester, NY and leaving with a sense of peace in a time of fear and chaos. Thank you for being there for Boston now. I am sure you and Robin Olson are a blessing to those in need right now.
