Please Pray for Martin Richard and Family
Posted by Larry Doyle on April 17, 2013 8:27 AM |
There remain no shortage of topics to address along the economic landscape but I beg your indulgence today.
There is nothing I might share here that could possibly be more meaningful than to use this forum to honor the request of Bill Richard, who lost his son Martin this past Monday at the Boston Marathon.
As if the loss of an 8-year old son is not enough for one man and family to bear, the Richard family’s young daughter Jane and mother Denise also suffered very serious injuries.
Bill Richard released the following message:
“My dear son Martin has died from injuries sustained in the attack on Boston. My wife and daughter are both recovering from serious injuries.
“We thank our family and friends, those we know and those we have never met, for their thoughts and prayers. I ask that you continue to pray for my family as we remember Martin.”
Please take a moment to offer whatever form of prayer you desire so that Bill Richard and his loved ones feel the overwhelming power and love of mankind. How often have you thought, “There but for the grace of God go I.”
Not knowing the time nor the hour of when we may be called, let our prayers for the Richard family and all those families impacted by Monday’s attack serve also to elevate our call to take up the fight — and it is a battle — and advance real hope, love, and charity in the world.
We are all members of the Richard family today.
Thank you and as always . . . navigate accordingly.
