This is Martin, 8. He died in the Boston bombing yesterday. He was at the finish line with his family, waiting for his dad to cross. His mother and little sister were catastrophically injured. He was the student of our dear friend, Rachel Moo. His message resonates powerfully today. My prayer is that we all live by Martin’s words, paying tribute to his too-brief, but immeasurably valuable life by following his example.
wow this should be on everyone’s blog. rest in peace beautiful<3
I haven’t posted anything about the Boston bombings yet. I live in Boston, about a 15-20 minute walk from where the bombs went off. I walk by that spot almost every weekend, and have for the past four years. Thankfully I had to be at work on Monday, otherwise I probably would’ve been right there. It’s just horrible, especially seeing this innocent, pure little boy talking about peace, being more wise than most adults. After that day, I really do appreciate my life so much, and am confident that this journey we’re all on to become healthier, better people is the right path. I couldn’t be prouder of what we’re doing here – trying to be the best we can in this life, before it’s too late. Clearly, 8-year-old Martin was trying to preach the same. RIP Martin and Krystle Marie, the other life lost from these senseless acts <3
Rest in peace, to this beautiful 8-year-old girl who lost her life at the Boston Marathon today.
Pray for Boston and the friends and families who lost a loved one today. May the ones who are recovering in the hospital get well soon.
