Boston Marathon

Yesterday was an epic day–both before and after the explosions. We are relieved to report that Isaya Lukumay, the founder of the Warriors Organization, who was running to raise money to build a preschool in Eluai, Tanzania, is okay. He crossed the finish line just ten minutes before the explosions. Times and speeds hardly matter at time like this, nevertheless, we are incredibly proud of him and even more relieved that he and all of the supporters who came to cheer him at the finish line were not hurt. As the aftermath of this event continues to ripple outward and inward, our hearts are with the victims, their families, the runners, the spectators, the city of Boston, and the world at large.
