8 Year Old Boston Marathon Victim Identified — Facebook Photo Shows a Touching Message [UPDATED]

I’m sad to forward this information along to you.

The youngest victims (so far) of yesterday’s attacks has been identified as 8-year-old Martin Richard. His mother was gravely injured and his 6-year-old sister reportedly lost her leg as they stood at the finish line to watch friends finish the race. His other sister and father were unharmed.

A friend of Martin’s teacher posted this (almost ominous) photo of him on Facebook earlier today:

Her accompanying message:

His message resonates powerfully today. My prayer is that we all live by Martin’s words, paying tribute to his too-brief, but immeasurably valuable life by following his example.

Rest In Peace, little guy.
