|Sad, sad, sad. . .|
PRAYERS for Boston and the victims of the Boston Marathon Bombings and their families. Normally something like this makes me sad for a moment and glad that I am fine. But this morning I could not - CAN NOT - shake the feeling of sadness this bombing has settled on me.
My cousin E has a track coach who was running the marathon yesterday. She is safe and home again. She was already over the finish line when the bomb went off.
My Mommy #2 has a dear dear friend whose daughter attends college near the bombing site. She is also fine but what a scary few hours until she could leave the building she was in!
I am so grateful they are both safe and healthy. But oh. . . . so much tragedy.
So I wonder. What goes on in the mind of someone who would do this? If it is for a cause - why target innocent people? If it is for notoriety - why not target yourself? As a pug, I guess I am prone to look for the happy solution - the Utopian ideal.
