Heartbreaking, Senseless Violence This Monday

My heart feels broken today. Two explosions at the Boston Marathon have left at least 3 dead and over 133 injured. At least 8 of the injured are in critical condition right now at the Massachusetts General Hospital and one of the deceased was an 8 year-old boy. We don’t know who did this – or why.

Even after the Newtown massacre of school children and teachers, the Aurora movie theater massacre and SO many other American tragedies that have occurred in recent years, it’s still a jarring shock when something horrendous like this happens in our country. We must all counts our blessings and hold our loved ones close.

Today I miss my family, many of whom are far away on the other side of the country. I wish I could hug them tonight. I’m sending so many thoughts and prayers out to the Boston Marathon victims and their families.
