It is really hard to be so far away from home when tragedy strikes. The bombing of the Boston Marathon is just horrific! It’s times like this when it’s easy to completely lose faith in human nature. Why???????
The Boston Marathon is not only a premier sporting event but also a family event for everybody living in the Boston area. Just like about everybody that we know, we always took the kids, a picnic, and joined friends to watch the marathon. It was such a happy, fun ocassion.
It’s somewhat surreal to be so far away, yet I keep checking the news on the internet for details and emailing friends to make sure everybody is OK. My heart and prayers are with everybody in Boston.
