From a collection of cards and objects sent to the Brigham and Women's Hospital by well-wishers after the terrorist bombing of the Boston Marathon on April 15, 2013. The collection represents a fraction of the items of support, sympathy, and encouragement sent from all over the country for the survivors of the attack, and the medical people who took care of them. Many of the cards and objects were handmade by children.
