My heart is heavy & I am scared about the world we live in today.
I am sad for the victims who lost their lives, for the injured whose lives will never be the same, and for the athletes who trained so hard for this one day and didn't get the chance to finish their accomplishment.
I am scared that there are people in this world that can be so evil.
I am thankful that all of my friends and family are safe, but have already heard many stories of friends being nearby and having to react to the situation.
A high school friend who is training to be a doctor ran the marathon and finished just before the bombs went off, her reaction was to run to the hospital to help. I wouldn't think she would do anything less, she is a really a dedicated and level headed person, and that's inspiring.
It is comforting to think that there is still humanity in this world and so many brave people helped in some way.
I guess I just have to remind myself that the majority of people are still GOOD.... And I want to thank all the first responders as heroes of the day.
Boston is strong and hearing the stories of those who opened their homes or acted in heroic ways gives me hope.
But I don't want to hear about whoever did this. They don't deserve recognition.
I hate all the evil.
Pray for Boston.
