Yesterday was a traumatic day for us here in Boston. A day that started beautifully ended with sadness, confusion and fear as reports related to the bombing, both confirmed and unconfirmed, trickled out. I had friends running in the marathon, who are thankfully safe. I also had friends (one of them 9 months pregnant) at the finish line, right across the street from one of the explosions. Thankfully they’re safe and unharmed as well. I feel lucky. Sadly, there are plenty of people who can’t say the same today.
At the time I’m writing this, 3 people have died (including an 8 year-old boy) and over 130 people have been injured. All I can do at this point is offer my condolences and well wishes to those affected by this pointless and tragic event. Lets hope they catch the person(s) responsible soon.
