The country was shaken by news of a terror attack during the running of the Boston Marathon. Two strategically placed bombs went off by the finish line killing three and injuring over 150 people.
Amongst the injured is the father-in-law of New England Revolution goalkeeper Matt Reis.
Upon hearing the news, the US Soccer community immediately rallied around the MLS veteran and his family. We here at EOS would like to do the same. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Reis family and to all those affected by this horrific tragedy.
Here are is a sampling of the many well wishes that have been offered over the past day:
