I am not in MA right now and the pictures of Boston are heart breaking. I hope you are all OK.

Yes, so sad, I could barely read the news. I always wonder, when something like this hits, what were they thinking? How does somebody's head get to be in a state where this seems like the right thing to do? So awful.

Such a tragedy beyond all comprehension. My heart aches for those involved and who were present. Living 2 hours north of Boston, it hits really close to home. The Marathon is such a rite of spring, and such a joyful occasion, it will never be the same.

I come from Boston, have sisters there, and nieces and nephews and cousins and friends.
First I was in shock, then today I cried a good bit.
I'm being narcissistic, to tell this, but I'm not even a resident of Boston! What do you think the bomber(s) wanted to accomplish!
I am so sorry for the people, the lost souls, the wounded and disillusioned....but I have much faith in the city, and know that next year's event will be a powerful statement.
Boston is my town, even more than Baltimore, and though I cheer for the Orioles, the Red Sox are deep down my guys.
I join Minh and Ceil and Flicka and add my prayers for the wounded, and love and support to Boston folks.


Life is beautiful.

Boston did itself proud. So many people offering aid and comfort to the victims. It has superb medical facilities and I am certain the victims are getting excellent care.

This event affects so much of the country, and the world, because the participants come from all over. I scan several U.S. newspapers daily, and today all of them reported on (their) local runners participating in the marathon. This hits home.

My sentiments exactly. Our church's choirmaster happened to fly to Boston on a red eye this morning, and I of course couldn't reach him by cell phone because that ability had been shut down. Not sure how texting is different, but I went that route and he wrote back right away, saying that he is okay.
