Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick and Boston Mayor Tom Menino have announced the formation of The One Fund Boston, Inc. to help the people most affected by the tragic events that occurred in Boston on April 15, 2013.
The Boston’s First Responders Fund was established to benefit the victims of the Boston Marathon Terrorism Attack. This Fund is one way to hopefully provide comfort in their time of need.
Written for the victims of 4/15 and inspired by the President’s words at the interfaith healing service at the Cathedral of the Holy Cross in Boston, Thursday, April 18, 2013. Imagine a song where the chorus builds until there are hundreds of voices coming together to show their support. This is the vision. Download, share, and submit your chorus to get added to the track.
