While taking my son to a doctor’s appointment this afternoon, I walked into the waiting room to find a crowd standing around the television, their voices silent.
Someone had set off two bombs at the finish line of the Boston Marathon.
My heart is with the families and victims of this tragedy. I pray for healing, for understanding, and for the investigators to ferret out this coward who took the lives of three and maimed many more. Hopefully we will find the culprits who did this and exact swift justice.
Oklahoma City will host a marathon on the 28th which is an annual event in remembrance of the Oklahoma City Bombing in 1993. City officials have no plans to cancel the run, but I’m sure security will be that much more stringent.
Stop, wherever you are, and send up a prayer for the families affected by this tragedy.
