The source of these bombs is still not known, but their orchestration and timing suggest a premeditated desire to do as much damage as possible. And serious damage was done. At this writing, less than 24 hours after the bombings, three have died; over 100 are hospitalized; many were maimed.

Dear Neighbor,

This morning the recovery continues as an all-hands-on-deck effort. The scale of the damage is daunting. Although some progress is being made, there is a need throughout the most affected areas of New York City for non-perishable food, water, and other items for those who cannot get out to buy supplies for themselves.
