This New York Yankees fan’s heart is in Boston

Today, baseball can wait.

As everyone here in my hometown of New York City thoughts and prayers are with the great city and people of Boston, Massachusetts who are going through a very painful time.

It is so hard to comprehend why anyone would want to deliberately hurt others through such acts of violence.

So all we can do is pray for the victims, their loved ones, for the entire city of Boston who were subjected to beholding such an unwarranted tragedy and of course for peace.

The only thing I can say is lean on each other because the sense of unity will offer much-needed comfort in the forthcoming days.

I will share with you a prayer that came from St. Charles Borromeo Church in Woburn, Massachusetts; it is called Prayer for September 11th.

Jesus,
beloved Savior,
in remembering
these terrible events,
we recognize our great need
for Your guidance and protection.
We have painfully learned
that our country is vulnerable
and that violence can disrupt
both individuals and nations.
We pray then for healing
for all the people whose lives
were shattered in the attacks.
We pray for those
who defend our freedom.
We pray for wisdom
for our national leaders.
We pray for peace,
for our country and our world.
Jesus, beloved Savior,
as we remember,
hold us in Your loving hands.
Amen

Please know that all of New York City stands behind you in every, and anyway possible.

Forgiving what we cannot forget creates a new way to remember. We change the memory of our past into a hope for our future. - Lewis B. Smedes
