my heart is heavy tonight. as most of you may have heard, there were two bombs that exploded during the boston marathon today. there are over 144 people injured and at last count, three dead, including an eight year old boy, who was waiting for his dad to run by the finish line. simply horrific.
after a day of watching the news, reading the paper, scrolling through the internet for stories about the catastrophic day in boston, i am incredibly sad. once again, our country is on alert. once again, we as citizens of the united states, band together in solidarity, in show of support for all of those innocent victims in boston. senseless and cowardly. again. i have a few friends who were running in the marathon, thankfully, all have been accounted for and are safe and sound. thankfully. i first learned about the tragedy in the early afternoon, as i was returning from lunch. literally, i froze. my mind immediately went back to september 11, 2001. that same feeling of helplessness and fear returned. i rushed back to the office and turned on the news. what a scary world we live in. i'm speechless.
what scares me more is that no one has stepped forward to claim responsibility. a terrorist attack? a domestic, sick individual? show yourself(ves) cowards! i am so angry! why would someone do this?
since i don't know how else to help, besides contributing to the red cross, join me please, in praying for the victims and for our country. if you don't pray, that's cool. just send positive thoughts and energy to the universe, all good thoughts are accepted.
do me a favor, hug your loved ones, right a wrong, make amends, let go of anger and resentment. in the grand scheme of things, none of that matters, really.
