As a person who lives in Massachusetts and always calls today, “Marathon Monday”, I am overwhelmed at the events that occurred today in Boston. I have shed some tears and been sick to my stomach since I heard the news. I could hardly wait to get home from work to see the results and feel the joy of marathoners to give me that last training burst before my marathon in a few weeks and now I just sit in shock while watching the coverage on the news.
A wonderful thing occurs in such tragedies like this, we reach out to each other and try to understand “why”. We rely on each other and look for hope. We become stronger.
I have no more words to even digest this whole thing at this time but I found this quote that I thought was appropriate right now.
“Here is the world. Beautiful and terrible things will happen. Don’t be afraid.”
