I awoke to the hubs telling me that an explosion has occurred near the finish line of the Boston Marathon.
I was shellshocked. That oh-so-familiar area, that path that leads to Copley library, now smeared with bloodstain.
As I read the newsfeed and twitter updates, my emotions turned to that of anger.
The world is already in such a messy state. To the one(s) who caused this: Why, oh why, do you add more chaos to it? Have you no regard for life?
What could have been a joyous occasion for both marathoners and spectators has turned out to be a tragedy.
Folks in Beantown, stay safe. Elsewhere in the world, many are praying.
