Video of the Humanist Memorial Service for the Victims of the Boston Bombings

Over the weekend, after atheists were excluded from the “interfaith” service for the victims of the Boston bombings, the Humanist Community at Harvard held a secular memorial service to pay their respects to the victims and the wounded. Speakers included representatives from the Harvard group, the Secular Coalition for Massachusetts, and the Boston Atheists:

The crowd isn’t huge, but then again, after the week they had, I wouldn’t blame them for spending some time at home with their own families and friends.

What stands out as you listen to the speeches is how they really wouldn’t have been out of place at the interfaith service.

You don’t need God to mourn for the lost.
