Boston Area Residents Reach Out to Help

In the midst of terror and tragedy, thousands of Boston-area residents are “Being a Blessing”.  Many offered rides out of the city.  Others offered up their homes.

At 5:39 p.m. the first entry appeared on the public Google spreadsheet announcing offers of help.  Only two hours later, the list had grown to over 4,000!

In his article, Eric Adelson writes, “More than 4,000 people put their personal information on the Internet for everyone to see because they wanted total strangers to come over to their houses and rest and feel better. Think about that.”

I agree with Eric.  That is something to think about.  I find it both comforting and uplifting.
