Reporting From Boston

from Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun,

They walked the streets, many in stunned silence and looking confused, wearing their bibs from the 117th running of the Boston Marathon.

Two deadly explosions at the finish line of one of the most historic road races shook this city and sent shivers across the world and a country into hysteria as many were left with one question: Why?

The area around the finish line of the 26-mile race on Boylston Street was evacuated after the blasts, which created a fireball and smoke that billowed 50 feet into the air from behind spectators and a row of flags, killed three people and injured more than 100, some of whom had limbs amputated. Foreign Affairs officials said late Monday they were not aware of any Canadians among the dead or injured.

Who bombs children and athletes? Who hates so much that they become indifferent to innocent lives? It makes you numb because you just can’t understand and can’t do anything to stop it. You try to ignore it, hoping it just goes away. But it doesn’t. My thoughts and prayers go out to those so viciously killed and mamed in Boston.
