Several members of the Hamilton College community were touched by the bombings at the Boston Marathon. We have learned that students, alumni and at least one employee ran in Monday’s race. Although shaken emotionally, none of them was gravely injured, according to what has been reported to us, but an alumnus standing near the finish line was injured when one of the bombs exploded. He was released from the hospital last night. Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims of this terrible act of senseless violence and with their families.
