Friends, Between the years of 1991 and 2015 I ran and crossed the finish line of the Boston Marathon every year with the exception of 2013 when two bombs tore through the crowd at the finish line. These explosions stopped the race, injured hundreds and took the lives of three wonderful people. One of those who perished as a result of the senseless act was eight year old Martin Richard. Martin was an amazing boy who loved life. His death had the deepest impact on me because as a boy I had stood on the sidelines with my dad and siblings watching the runners pass as did my wife with my three boys every year that I ran. It affected my entire family deeply because the marathon had become a rite of spring as my brother and I ran each year and all of our siblings and nieces and nephews came to watch.
