THE STORY:

.

Dear Friends, family and colleagues,

With a heavy heart we give you thanks for all your texts, emails and phone calls as well as your donations to our charity, HOPE. We appreciate not only your thoughts and prayers but the amazing sense of community and compassion that has surrounded us since Monday. We are ever so thankful that we are safe, that a minute or two and a city block kept us from harm’s way and that our children were delayed in arriving at their usual spots by the finish line. We grieve and will continue to grieve for the lives lost, for the injured and for the innocence in believing that a marathon such as Boston’s was too special for something like this to ever happen here. Even in the midst of chaos the people of Boston showed their mettle. So many strangers approached us that day; they did not run away from danger but came towards it. They offered water, blankets, food and shelter and most importantly a way to contact family members to let them know we were all right. The first responders, volunteers, and BAA staff did what they were trained to do and so much more. We are immensely proud of our city. If the House of Possibilities will have us again we are more determined than ever to run next year and finish what was stolen from us this year.  This marathon, this city, this community deserves much more than the cowardly actions of a few on Monday afternoon and we only hope that you will join us again in 2014 in making  sure that they know it.   Sincerely, Rafael and Lisa
