One Fund Boston

Sox fans at Fenway
A wrenching, horror filled week ended today in mourning, grace and hope.

David "Big Poppy" Ortiz

David Ortiz, "This is our (expletive) city" voiced Boston's fierce pride at the Sox pre-game ceremony honoring the Marathon bombing victims, responders, medical personnel, law enforcement.

Medical costs for the injured will be astronomical. The cost to resume their lives is inestimable, emotionally and financially.

Governor Patrick and Boston Mayor Tom Menino set up The One Fund to aid victims and their families of the Marathon bombings. John Hancock, New Balance, AT&T New England, Bain Capital, The Celtics, The Red Sox and so many more have already donated. JetBlue will match your donation and give you points (JetBlue). AT&T customers can text BOSTON to 80108 to give $10. Or click here, The One Fund Boston 2013.

This terrible week is over for us. The injured victims and their families are just starting out on a rough road, longer than any marathon.

Acting humanely in the face of evil is the only triumph.
