…but honestly, I can think of nothing original to say. This is horrific. I’m very sorry it happened and I hope they find and arrest whoever it was that did it. I hope the wounded all recover. What else can you really say about something like this?
I heard about it on the car radio and they didn’t have any details, just something about bombs going off on the Boston Marathon. I texted Mom (after I’d arrived at my destination and parked) saying “There’s some crazy stuff in Boston right now if you didn’t know.” She was at the summer home on a relatively isolated island, sans internet, so I thought she probably didn’t know. She texted back: “What?” And I texted: “Bombs.” Which probably sent her rushing to the TV or something. I went to a librarian and asked her about it, and together we looked at some of the online coverage.
This is a terrible world. No wonder I so frequently grow tired of my own existence.
