Today marks two years since the Boston Marathon of 2013. As a runner that day and again a year later, I am deeply moved by all the actions taken to remember this day. Today I too remember Krystle Campbell, Sean Collier, Lingzi Lu and Martin Richard, and those who were injured, as well as those who raced in to help and all who were touched by this day.
As I walk through Eastertide this season I am constantly seeing resurrection each day. Resurrection is not just life after death but rather "resurrection is a divine act of radically transforming a person into quite a different mode of existence. Resurrection is thorough change into another way of existing." The "One Boston Day" is a great example of resurrection.
One Boston Day is transforming a horrific event, the bombing of the Boston Marathon in 2013, into a day of giving. One act of giving I offer is this Celtic prayer; to runners and walkers, body assisted and abled bodied, marathon runners and marathon spectators:
May the peace of the winding road be under your fee, by the peace of the warm wind be act your back, and may the deep peace of the Prince of Peace be with you always. Amen.
