In the aftermath of the Boston Marathon bombing, StreetPass Boston shares the following message with the full StreetPass Network…
StreetPass Boston would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to StreetPass Long Island, NYC, Princeton, and everyone else who has sent words of kindness, encouragement, and support in this difficult time. And thank you to those keeping our group and our city in your thoughts/prayers today and over the coming week.
To our sisters and brothers in major cities who may be fearful of attack, now reluctant to meet in large groups in the wake of this tragedy: It’s OK to be scared. But we must ask ourselves to also be courageous; fear should not control us. To disrupt our lives is what these people wanted; we cannot and must not allow it. Courage is not the absence of fear; courage is being afraid — but doing the right thing anyway.
Boston, though not always perfect, has a long history of facing hatred and oppression, yet standing proud and defiant; never yielding but often leading the charge. In light of this, StreetPass Boston WILL be holding a meetup this weekend during Boston Comic Con. Please stay tuned to our Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ channels in the next 24 hours for details.
Peace be with you all.
