Senseless…

Photo: Feel free to share.  Praying for Boston and those affected.  The marathon runner is strong and no one can take that away.

This hits close to home – both as a runner, and as a MA resident.  There will be a lot of discussion about the causes, what could have been done differently, etc.  But, I hope people don’t lose sight of the individuals impacted – those injured/killed, the runners who never got to finish, the first responders, all the good samaritans at the scene… and the list goes on.  This isn’t a time for rhetoric or political agenda – it is a time to mourn, to grow and learn together, and to try and move toward a future when people won’t feel the need to use violence to try and promote their political views.

It looks like people will be wearing race shirts tomorrow as an act of solidarity.  I know I will participate – care to join me?
