On yesterday, we experienced another tragedy in Boston when an explosion occurred near the finish line at the Boston Marathon. According to the New York Times, almost 23,000 runners participated in the race and approximately three-quarters of the runners had crossed the finish line prior to the bomb exploding. President Obama made a statement following the explosion and stated “I'm supremely confident that Bostonians will pull together, take care of each other, and move forward as one proud city. And as they do, the American people will be with them every single step of the way.”
In the wake of another tragedy, below are some resources to help children and their families cope and process the event.
