Pray for Boston

Today I pray for Boston. As a mother I cannot imagine losing my son to such a horrific incident. Thoughts and prayers to all affected by this senseless act but especially to the family of Martin Richard, the 8 year old boy who died from the explosion. 

Here are ways you can help:

Do not rush to give blood in BostonThe Red Cross tweeted that there is "enough blood on shelves to meet demand," following the tragedy in Boston. However, American Red Cross spokeswoman Anne Marie Borrego tells NBC News that she encourages those who want to help or give back in some way to schedule a time in the future to give blood. Most importantly, people — especially those in Boston — can help by visiting the Safe and Well website, and to "listen to local authorities."
