When awful things like this happen the world gets smaller. My husband's boss, who owns a small family run business here in PA, was running in that marathon. He finished 15 minutes before the first bomb went off. One of my nieces lives in Boston but wasn't watching/participating.
My prayers go out to all the families of the dead/injured.
I believe in myself, I am a strong woman. I will reach my goals, NOTHING & NOBODY will hold me down. I will live my life with integrity and intention. I will set a good example for my daughters and my son. I will be a woman that makes my grand children proud when they look at pictures of me long after I've left this earth.
It just makes me angry at this point. Apparently it's gotten to the point that good folks can't even exercise without worrying about terrorist! I keep hoping all this is behind us, and then something like this happens.
I just hope the President is able to track down who did this and is able to send out a clear message that terrorist cannot and will not get away with it anymore.

This being SparkPeople, I feel sure some of our SP friends participated in the marathon. Prayers ascending for all those injured and emotionally traumatized by such a despicable act.
Some people think the “plant-based whole foods diet” is extreme. Half a million a year will have their chests opened up and a vein taken from their leg and sewn onto their coronary artery. Some people would call that extreme. - Dr. Caldwell B. Esselstyn, “Forks Over Knives”
