No more hurting people…Peace.
That was the poignant message from Martin Richard, one of the victims of the Boston bombing.
He was one of the four people who cruelly lost their lives when two bombs exploded at the finish line of the Boston Marathon on April 15. More than 200 were wounded including his sister and mother, some fatally
It’s very natural to get a deep feel of this tragedy just by looking at Martin’s face, his sweet gap-toothed smile.
He is a symbol of everything good and pure about America, the very opposite of the evil perpetrators of this act.
Even though he had been laid to rest in a private funeral two days ago, his face and message of peace will forever remain indelible in my heart, just like the picture of that blood-splattered young man who had both legs blown off being wheeled away from the scene, his face ashen.
It is my hope that every perpetrator of evil would remember this little face and message everytime they are on the verge of dreaming up more destruction.
The dead are at peace now, free from troubles and sorrow.
May they continue to RIP
May the wounded find healing.
May the tramatized find peace.
May every twisted heart find redemption.
And may there be an end to tragedy and destruction in our society.
NO MORE HURTING PEOPLE…..PEACE.
Have a great weekend.
