Boston is less than a two hour drive from us, and even faster by train–a quick trip from the nearby Kingston Station to downtown. Monday was Patriot’s Day, a huge holiday in Massachusetts and, with the Boston Marathon, an especially festive time in Boston. It’s a big family day, something special. And right next door.
My heart goes out to all of those affected. I can’t imagine the grief and pain and shock. I see the images on television and I can’t believe this has happened once again in our country.
I pray they get the bastards who did this.
