Message on the Boston Marathon Bombings

[Posted 4-16-13] Yesterday’s destructive and tragic events at the Boston Marathon weigh heavily on all of us. Our hearts and our prayers are with those who have been injured and with the families who have lost loved ones. We deeply appreciate the many encouraging messages we have received from friends throughout the world.
We are reminded by these fateful events how very important it is to keep moving forward in the spirit of dialogue and tolerance, especially in times like these. The Center’s founder has said, "Everything is born from hope." Crucially, he adds that even when it appears that all hope is gone, we still have the power to create hope ourselves.
In this spirit, we will carry on with even greater faith in the inherent goodness of people and the power of dialogue to bring that goodness to the fore.
