I have been thinking about what to write all day. But I am speechless and at a total loss of words, as many of you are, about the senseless violence that affected so many lives and killed innocent people, even kids. It is a tragedy I just cannot wrap my head around. Those were innocent people, running for themselves or for a special cause, they were simply running.
What's wrong with the world? Again, I want to go to Dreamland and live in a world without hatred and brutality. This post says it ever so eloquently what is on my mind.
I am glad to learn, however, that there are so many good people out there. First responders who rushed to the attack site to help, hundreds of Bostoners who opened up their homes for total strangers in need, restaurants that offered food and internet access for free, big companies like Google that tried to help with lists accessible to anyone in order to find missed ones.
My thoughts and prayers are with the victims and the families and friends affected by this act of cowardice.
