Turn grief into charity for Boston

We’re in the wait-and-see stage of the terror-attack investigation. We don’t know much yet, and some of what we thought we knew was wrong. It’s a time when there’s a huge disparity between the desire for information and the amount of reliable facts available, when public officials can offer little beyond comforting words and vows to bring to justice the person behind this deed.

So rather than speculate or fulminate, today I’d like to suggest a way to turn a day of tragedy and trauma into something that can help those whose lives were irrevocably altered in few seconds Monday afternoon. And a way to give all the people who want to help an outlet for their compassion and generosity.
