I know someone who was running the the Boston Marathon. Thankfully, that person is safe and sound.
Many others were not so lucky.
Coverage of the terrorist attack, the additional information rolling in, the breaking news that has been covered admirably and not so admirably elsewhere, and the aftermath. I have little that can add or subtract from that in that regard.
For those police, doctors, and volunteers who have done so much to help in response to this attack, my hat’s off to you.
The most that the majority of us can do is offer thoughts and prayers.
