The Worst Deja Vu

The horrors from the attacks on the Boston Marathon were very tough to look at this past day and night.  Just terrible that another great East Coast city was attacked, and on such a special day, Patriots’ Day.  Everyone back East loves Boston, and there is no better time than taking in a ballgame, or the marathon, or maybe a hockey or basketball game than on Patriots’ Day.  It is very fun…and very, well, patriotic…and then an act of terrorism.  So happy that our local runners are all safe and sound and, hopefully, will be back here soon.  And so blessed that there are so many heroes that respond to those in need so quickly, from first responders, to average citizens….from the elderly to the young…that bring calm and love to such chaos.  Those heroes are awesome.  Now my prayers to those that were lost, those who are hurt and the doctors and nurses who are caring for them, and to the city of Boston.
