Boston Marathon Tragedy
Words can’t begin to describe the sense of extreme sadness and yes, fear too that came over me as I rode the bus home from Boston to Cape Cod yesterday. Now, it’s anger and frustration that once again, we have an as yet unknown, callous and cowardly act of terrorism here in Boston. I won’t give in to fear. I want to focus instead on the heroes among the crowds; the people who ran towards the danger, the strangers who stopped to help, the medical workers who saved more lives than were lost, the people of the world who came to see a race and ended up seeing how courage and compassion make us who we are. Thank you. Carry on.
