There will be a Candlelight Vigil tonight at the Arlington Church at 8P in Boston. Openly gay Rev. Kim K. Crawford Harvie Senior Minister will be holding the service stating, “Two bombs went off at the finish line of the Boston Marathon. The number of injured and dead is growing. So far, that is all we know. There is no one to blame, no sense to be made of the senselessness, nothing to distract us from the raw horror of the violence that shattered a beautiful afternoon in Boston at its finest. This is a good time to remember, as George Odell wrote, ‘We need one another when we mourn and would be comforted; We need one another when we are in trouble and afraid.’ Let's gather at Arlington Street to be together. Let us sing together and pray together and lift up candles together; together, let us make light in this darkness. I am holding each of you very close. Faithfully yours, with much love. Kim” OUTTAKE VOICES is based in Boston. Yesterday my partner Marilyn and I were walking around Jamaica Plain Pond when we heard all the ambulances racing by and an unmarked car that Governor Patrick was in headed for downtown. A woman walking behind us brought us up to speed of what had happened. When we returned home family and friends reached out to us via email and the phone. My niece Kira and her husband Ryan were about a block away and ran to safety with hundreds of others. They're okay but shaken as all Bostonians are. Today we are dazed and very sad.
We thank everyone for your thoughts. There will also be a vigil on The Boston Commons at 8P.
