U Stands for Unity

In the wake of the horrific events that rocked Boston last week, I felt the need to veer from my regular A to Z theme of "What I've learned from Pinterest" to give positive attention to the good that rose from those ashes. Boston, and our nation, became fully UNITED. Family is family, and when tragedy strikes home, Americans UNITE as a family. And so does our writing community. As always, the writing community saw a need in the world and is stepping forward to make a difference. I am honored to spread word of this valiant cause.
