Kids have always suffered during war and crisis, but there's a sense the burden of instability is being increasingly borne by children.
Many of those injured in the Boston Marathon bombings one week ago remain in the hospital. Among them are J.P. and Paul Norden, brothers who each lost a leg in the attack.
The brothers were regulars at Dockside Restaurant, which has locations in Everett, Chelsea, Malden and Wakefield, Mass.
Yesterday, all four locations hosted fundraisers to raise money for the Stoneham Marathon Victims Fund.
Here & Now’s Chris Ballman attended the fundraiser in Wakefield, and reports that residents turned out to offer their support and express their concern and anger.
Note: Donations are still being accepted for the Norden brothers, and can be mailed to the Stoneham Marathon Victims Fund, c/o Stoneham Bank 80 Montvale Ave. Stoneham, MA. 02180.
