Boston Marathon Explosions

My wife, Yvonne, and I extend our sincere condolences to the families of the victims who lost their lives today as a result of the cowardly actions during the Boston Marathon. We pray for the families of the victims and for the full recovery of those who were maimed and injured. This horrific tragedy should be a reminder to all of us that we should remain vigilant at every occasion where people gather.
