Take Aways From the Tragedy

Friday, April 19, 2013

I have to admit it - I HAVE seen things in the past that seemed a bit odd, out of place or just did not make sense to me - did I say something? Nope! But I will now!

I am also a runner - and just by chance I was not at Boston on Monday.

I have been at other large events and I have always prided myself on "having a plan" for after the race to meet up with my "peeps" - but never had a plan B or C. I will now! What if there is no cellphone service - what if they block off roads - what if they evacuate my hotel.

I will NOT be intimidated - but I will be more aware and prepared.

Take a run this week end for Bean Town and add them to your prayers.

    I'm really sorry that the tragedies hit so close to you. My heart went out for all you guys. It's very sad. I'm praying for all the victims and their families and all the people in Bean town. This must be very hard.
    And thank you for stopping by my blog. I hope you enjoy my cooking style.

    I remember, maybe 25 years ago, shouting loudly in a queue in Mothercare "who has left this bag here", adding that it could easily be a bomb. So many of the women in the queue looked at me like I had two (or more) heads... except the one who scuttled sheepishly along to collect her forgotten bag.

    Better safe than sorry, in all situations. Yes, a Plan B and Plan C are a good idea. We've got so reliant on technology, but cellphones have been immobilised in Boston because their signal might detonate a device.

    Don't hold back if you see something that doesn't look right. Don't die of embarrassment.
