I feel like I should say something about the Boston Marathon bombings here…

…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.

    Evil sh-t happens by people who think they are justified for doing it for whatever reason they let themselves believe. I’m tired of it as well.

      It reminds me of some famous quote, I can’t remember the exact words, but something like, “Never trust people who say they know what God wants, because whatever God wants tends to coincide with what THEY want.”

        Another quote I heard. Fanatics are people who think that they are doing what God would do if he were in their place.
