America 4 Boston Prayer Canvas

The America 4 Boston Prayer Canvas is a record of prayers, wishes, and words of comfort throughout America after a terrrorist attack.  Seven moms went into action after the Boston Marathon bombing with the intent to show that the good in the world outweighs the evil.  Starting with one canvas, the project grew to cover the Boston Common and created a healing laberynth for Boston.  The canvas includes messages from congress, professional sports teams, celebrities, schools, churches, synagogues, and beyond.  The project was free and available to everyone and in the end had more than 200k people participate.  It has been featured at Fenway Park, on the Marathon Finish Line, hospitals, and airports.  To this day, it is one of the largest records of what American citizens were thinking and feeling after a terrorist attack.
