Three pieces on the tragedy at Monday’s Boston Marathon:
The victims: We are praying for you. What a horrible scene, in an event meant to be fun and a celebration. People killed, people losing their limbs. May God be with you.
The responders: What courage it is to be in a situation of total chaos and be able to render aid to complete strangers. It’s a different kind of person who runs towards trouble versus running away from it! Boston is, above all else, a family city. The responders…and not just the uniformed persons…reacted like family.
The responsible party: We’re going to enjoy taking your freedom away from you. Don’t coward up and off yourself, but unfortunately you’ll probably do it yourself. Then again, the sooner you end it the better.
I’ve decided in two years, I’m going to run in the Boston Marathon. Wouldn’t be my first.
