This morning I woke up to the news about those awful events in Boston. I'm not quite sure what to say. I guess I'm still stunned. I'm happy that so few were killed and proud of those heroes who rushed in to help even with all the uncertainty that surrounded those frightening moments. I'm also sad for those who have lost loved ones. I'm sad for those who were injured. I'm sad for all those going through these events. I've been thinking about those who were racing. News reports say it was at the very end. It wasn't elite runners. It was people like you and me. It was people whose goal was to run the Boston Marathon and just to finish. It was families watching for their loved ones. It was unnecessary. But then every time something like tis happens, it always is. I listened to the presidents speech and him saying he was going to find out why. For me, why doesn't matter. Wrong is wrong and why doesn't make it better. My heart and prayers go out to all those hurt but another persons cowardice and selfishness. Not only in Boston, but in Connecticut, Colorado, Oregon, Texas, Oklahoma, New York, Washington DC, and so many others too numerous to count. Today I wear my favorite race shirt in honor of those lost, hurt and suffering. And I pray that we never have to suffer another tragedy like tis again.
