Tragic days

What can I say that already hasn't been expressed by so many. I am horrified by the events of the last few days. I feel so very sorry for the people of Boston, the runners and their supporters. I feel outraged that someone would commit such a senseless evil act, not caring who is hurt or killed. I can't get the image of that 8 year old little boy who died minutes after giving his Dad a congratulatory hug for running a Marathon. To me, it's simply not fair. I don't understand how this can happen.

We can say we will move on, not let these people, these terrorists win. Of course we will run again, the races will go on. Yet, things have changed. The innocence is gone again. Oh, they will not win, that is for certain, but our world has changed.

The one shining light in all that horror was that people came through, they helped each other in the worst possible circumstances regardless of their fear. They will continue to help each other no matter what, because that is what good people do!!
