BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Rabbi Shlomo Noginski of the Shaloh House in Brighton said he is grateful for the "outpouring of support" over the past few days after he was stabbed eight times outside the religious school on Thursday.
In a video statement obtained by WBZ-TV, Noginski said it was a "a great miracle" that he has been released from the hospital and is now recovering at home, although still in pain.
"Yes I am in pain, but it could have been so much worse," he said. "It is also especially fortunate that the assailant encountered me and I was therefore able to divert his attention from the school and the children."
"One message I would like to share with you is that the way to respond to darkness and evil is by increasing acts of goodness and kindness," Noginski said. "Each and every one of us can do another good deed."
