Aircuity Customers & Business Partners:
I’d like to express my sincere gratitude and appreciation to those of you that have inquired about the recent tragic events surrounding this year’s Boston Marathon. What should have been a beautiful and memorable day was abruptly turned dark and dangerous by an act of unconscionable behavior.
Although no one in the Aircuity family was directly affected by the explosions in downtown Boston, none of us are left untouched by this disaster. As lucky as we feel to be spared the pain of those suffering from injuries or the loss of a loved one, there is no escaping the feeling of how close this hits to our very own. On Friday our offices were closed as the manhunt for the suspects was conducted just two miles from our headquarters; obviously we were all more than willing to cooperate to both help the search and keep our employees safe.
As is the case in all disaster relief efforts, we can all take pride in the speed, expertise, and courage of the first responders that immediately sprang into action, saving lives while risking their own. Watching the unfolding story and the disturbing pictures that depict it can be overwhelming emotionally, and I think it is to be expected that we sometimes feel helpless to these situations. It is heartwarming to see how quickly we gather ourselves with a new resolve and turn to do what we can to recover, rebuild, and mend as best we can.
If any of you are wondering what you can do from a distance, I’d first like to acknowledge that your expression of concern and sympathy mean a lot to all of us here in Newton. There have been a number of relief funds established in the near term; for those of you who wish to donate directly in support of those efforts I’d like to suggest the “One Fund Boston”:
Thanks again for your support, your thoughts, and your prayers. We are all Boston Strong!
CEO, Aircuity Inc.
