America loves Boston, and loves the victims of the Boston Marathon
bombings. To show their love, people from around the country are signing
gigantic "prayer canvases," leaving thought, prayers and well wishes.
Canvas founder Kari Wagner said she started the project to give
ordinary Americans a way to show their support. Many don't have money to
give, but they do have compassion and believe the country should stand
united against terrorism, she told the Boston Herald.
canvases are 16-by-18 feet, and have made appearances all across
America, including NASCAR races, national parks and other big events.
and the other prayer canvas volunteers hope to reach every state in
time for the 2014 Boston Marathon. the canvases will be displayed at
Fenway Park, according to the herald.
