April 22, 2013


Members of the HKS Community gathered Monday (April 22) in the John F. Kennedy Jr. Forum for a moment of silence to mark the one week anniversary of the Boston Marathon bombings. 

Dean David T. Ellwood spoke to students, staff and faculty about the tragedy, while commending the tremendous efforts of police and emergency responders in the hours and days following the bombings. 

While expressing his sense of relief that the two suspects are no longer on the run, Ellwood admitted that "it's hard to know where to go from here."

Ellwood noted that with Spring Exercise getting underway, students can now begin to refocus their energies and efforts on the very important work that remains. 

"There are big challenges hard issues above and beyond this [tragedy] that will keep us busy looking for answers," he said.
