The tragic events of the Boston Marathon marred what was a wonderful Spring Day in New England, a welcome respite after a long dark winter. In twelve seconds, everything changed. The darkness that perpetrated these heinous acts did not succeed. As people, we are resilient; we pick ourselves up and help each other in these times. This is when we need to let our Masonic principles stand front and center, shine the Light outward…Faith, Hope, and Charity must be our guide.
