The Actions Of A Younger Sister Remind Us That There Is Hope

On Saturday, Bridgewater State University in Massachusetts unveiled a statue of Martin Richard, the 8-year-old boy killed in the 2013 Boston Marathon Bombing. Both of Martin’s parents graduated from the University, and Martin wanted to go there also. What made the unveiling an truly special event were the actions of Martin’s younger sister, Jane, who as the photographer was taking pictures of the statue of her brother, gave her brother bunny ears. The gesture was simply an example of what Jane and Martin would be doing if he had not been killed in the attack. Jane was also injured in the attack, losing a leg.
