The hat is simple, the Boston Skyline, the motto “Boston Strong” that so fits our town. One star for each person taken from us. “Peace” over the skyline. a shamrock for an “O”, a chevron design near the top. All proceeds from the sale of this cap pattern will go to OneFundBoston to help the victims. My hope is that next year Boston will be stronger than ever. My hope is that all who weren’t able to finish the race this year will somehow be given the chance to run the last mile.

The Peace Hat is dedicated to the message of one of the youngest victims. “No more hurting each other, Peace.”

I once heard a story that we each were allotted as much time in life as we need to learn all of life’s lessons. This little boy must have been very wise indeed as he seemed to already have learned the key to life.

Now we have to carry on his message of peace.
