What a shock to hear this news about my favorite sporting event. It was one of my goals years ago to run this marathon,. Hugs to all those affected by this senseless violence.

There's a special place in the afterlife for people who kill children.

I have several friends who were there - thankfully none were hurt. My thoughts and prayers go out to all those affected.

I used to live very close to the start of the race in Hopkinton and "walked" the route three times in honor of our daughter who is a cancer survivor so am familiar with the spot where the bombs went off. I also worked for the physician who was the medical director of the marathon. It was a horrific scene. Luckily it was just across from the medical tent so medical help was there immediately. Guess it's not just guns that are causing chaos in this country. What a crazy, sick world we live in. My prayers go out to all of those who were injured and their families.

I don't think there is anyone here in Eastern MA who has not been impacted by this in some way. I am just sick.

Every year the hubby tries to convince us to go into the city to the finish line but 3 out of 4 of us don't do well with crowds. So we never go.

We have several friends who ran the marathon this year. They finished and left with their families just before the explosions. Scary.

TTFN,
Pam

I won't even go to the start, let alone the finish, and you know how close I am to that!

I am just so sad this morning, I can't get out of my own way. I am supposed to go in to the Brigham for my Rheumatology appointment today, and I REALLY don't want to go into the city at all, or that hospital in particular.
