When I was 20 I decided to take a year off from the University of Rhode Island and move to Boston. Several of my friends from Rochester NY decided to do the same. Yes we were young and crazy but we all had jobs and LOVED the area of Boston knownas "Back Bay". When I turned on my TV today all I saw were reruns of the Terrorist bombs blowing up at the Boston Marathon. The same streets I recognised from my youth were now a crime scene. The victims..innocent people cheering on there loved ones who worked so long and hard to compete in this classic event, were now injured or dead. The eight year old boy, the young woman and another we will grieve their deaths as if they were our own. The others who lived are scarred physically and emotionally forever. I'm praying for the victims and their famillies. I recognise all the streets and landmarks and it hurts deeply to see my old home descicrated in this way. Please pray with me for the victims, their families, friends, and all those affected. I also pray that whoever's responsible be found and brought to justice. God bless Boston and the heroes who ran toward the victims to help.
