The bombing of the finish line at the famed Boston Marathon has rocked the civilized world.
The Boston Marathon is an historical sporting event that brings joy to hundreds of thousands of people every year. It is celebrated by runners, their friends and family members. Many runners who complete the 26+ mile race are winners regardless of their times because they might have dealt with really tough events in life during the prior year.
Runners and their supporters travel from all around the US and the world.
For a person or group to choose this venue to terrorize the world is an awful thing and we mourn for the victims and pray that those responsible are brought to justice and they are not able to harm any others. To choose an event that has tenacles that tie back to all people in all areas of the world shows the evil nature of the force behind this massacre.
It is hard for all of us to understand the type of thinking that is behind this tragedy. We also do not humanly understand how such a force can even be possible in life let alone somehow controlled by villainous humans. It is very scary when you look at it this way.
Now, around the clock, the images will be played over and over again and we will all watch...in respect for the victims and in amazement of the situation and really in shock just as if we were right there watching the event unfold in person. The terrorists will somehow get to do their intended "thing" to all of our heads over and over again.
