What Evil Does


Creates headlines like:

Martin Richard, 8, loved playing with sister, friends

With details like:

“He was so polite, composed, older than his years really,” Christina Keefe said of Martin on Tuesday morning. “I can see him now, holding his mom’s arm as she took them on their walks around the neighborhood.”


The boy loved to clamber up trees in the neighborhood and play outside his home, neighbor Betty Delorey told the AP.

His mother and one of his sisters are reportedly seriously injured. May Richard rest in peace, and his family be consoled by the love that knows no end.
