Our Reputation for Compassionate Response
I attended a lecture on leadership at the University of Richmond last night. At the end of the event, a stranger walked up to me. She looked at my Red Cross pin and said, “thank you for what you all are doing right now in Boston. The Red Cross is awesome.” I thanked her for her words of encouragement.
I am grateful that our neighbors trust that we will be there for them, and their loved ones, whenever and wherever the unexpected occurs.
My heart goes out to the people whose lives were disrupted by the tragic event in Boston.
