Today was filled with tragedy. It was the day of the Boston Marathon. Runners had crossed the finish line, some were still making their way there. Two bombs filled with ball bearings were placed in trash cans alongside the last few yards of the race. They exploded a few seconds apart, killing 3 people (one was an 8 year old) and injuring at least 100 people. Last count was 144. I'm trying not to be angry--it won't help a thing to be. Why would anyone do such a thing is beyond my comprehension. It makes no sense at all. The media is giving the unknown "suspect(s)" so much attention that I fear it will only encourage more senseless acts of terrorism from others seeking to be "famous," in the same sort of way.
What has happened to this great country of ours?
