ST. LOUIS (KSDK) - It's been a week of anxiety and fear since the Boston marathon bombings.
But, for a small group of St. Louis residents who are members of the Harvard Club - St. Louis, it has especially hit home.

"I actually had a friend who crossed the finish line 10 minutes before the bomb went off and just hearing that and that tragedy could have hit so close to home in just 10 minutes," said Luke Marklin.
Another member has three children attending college in the Boston area.
"All the schools were very good. They each sent us an email, multiple emails today," said Eugenio Herbosa.
Harvard graduate Mary Ellen Hammond knew one of the bombing victims, Krystle Campbell. Hammond says while she was in business school, Campbell worked as part of the support staff for students.
