Message of condolence regarding Boston tragedy

April 16, 2013

"On behalf of the Emory University community, I express our deepest condolences to those who lost loved ones or who were injured in yesterday's bombing during the Boston Marathon. With a large number of alumni in Boston, as well as many students, faculty members, and staff with family in the area, we are still determining whether any of our community members have been directly affected by yesterday's violence. As details of the crime and its impact continue to emerge, our hearts join with Boston in feeling the wound of this terrible event. For those grieving or touched by fear, we pray for peace, as we pray for an end to all such terror."
