American Red Cross Launches New ‘Boston Strong’ Page

The American Red Cross launched a new website one month after the bombings dedicated to helping those affected by the bombings recovery fully.  The Red Cross has been involved in the Boston Marathon for decades, usually providing physical relief and care to runners. “Never could I have imagined we’d be talking about a response to the Boston Marathon that included taking a central role in Disaster Mental Health, aid to the families of the injured and deceased, and a role in helping our community heal,” said Jarrett Barrios, CEO, American Red Cross of Eastern Massachusetts. “But that’s where the volunteers I work with were needed after the Boston Marathon Bombing, and where we stay, offering assistance.” The new web page includes tips for coping through a crisis, supporting the community and offering emotional comfort, public thank-yous to those who have helped the relief effort, and more.   You can find the new webpage at redcross.org/bostonstrong.  Do you feel like you’ve recovered emotionally from the attack on the marathon? Are you happy to see these tips for others in the community? Tell us in the comments.  South End Patch

‘One Boston’ Tumblr Page Shares the Love

As the city of Boston attempts to go back to normal following the horrific events at this year’s marathon, it isn’t ready to just clean up and move on.  Not when there was an outpouring of support from residents, children and people far and wide left at the site of the bombing and other sites around Copley Square. In order to preserve the well-wishes and notes left for Boston, the city has created a Tumblr page to document it all to effectively memoralize the memorial.  Browse through and see the artwork and adorably misspelled letters from children, and the uplifting messages of hope and faith left by adults. Remember how it felt to go through that week and to have an outpouring of support from friends, relatives and even strangers. And if you have something to share, you can submit it through the Tumbler page to be included.  South End Patch
