In the wake of the Boston Marathon bombings a little good goes a long way. Less than a month ago the Greater Boston Area witnessed a horrific act that changed their lives forever. However, as the mantra ‘Boston Strong’ rings through local television stations and billboards show signs of recovery, it reminds us others are suffering also. The New England Patriots held a free football camp in Newtown, Connecticut and again, a little good goes a long way. We often hear Bill Belichick talk about ‘mental toughness’ and ‘moving on’ and its evident the team wants to be a part of the healing process. Owner Bob Kraft offered this statement:   “Out of bad things, good things can happen, and the good here is to see the resilience and the mental toughness and support this community gave to one another,” Kraft said. ”We saw it in Boston right after the horrible events on Patriots’ Day, the same way the community came together,” Kraft said, via Josh Alper of Profootballtalk.com. Alper writes: ‘Around 30 current and former Patriots players, coaches and cheerleaders took part in the clinic, which saw more than 500 participants pre-register and more register on the day of the event.’
