When events happen such as the one yesterday at the Boston Marathon, I go through a range of emotions.
Shock -- that this could actually happen on American soil.
Fear -- that this will probably not be the last such attack.
Anger -- that anyone would have such a disregard for human life.
Sadness -- for those innocent ones that must deal with death and injury.
And then there is my favorite of all emotions -- HOPE!
Hope -- that we can all unite and support our brothers and sisters in Boston.
Hope -- that from this can come change to hopefully prevent future attacks.
Hope -- that certainly that those responsible will be swiftly brought to justice.
Hope -- that we can understand from such senseless acts that our time on this earth is short and with that comes a perspective on how to live and serve each other -- to make this world a better place.
My heart and prayers will continually go out to the city of Boston and all those people from around the world that were there and tragically effected.

We are on to the next round of the playoffs. We were able to sweep Dynamo Moscow in this first round. The first game was tough in the first half and we were able to pull away in the second half, but in game two it was down to the wire. It was win or go home for Dynamo and they came out fighting like any competitor would do. It was Epiphany Prince for us that caught fire and carried us over the top to victory. She went 6-8 from behind the 3 point line and finished with 28 points. On the other side it was Kristie Toliver that tried her best to carry her team to victory but was not able to.
Our team really rallied together and came up with some key stops as well as some big shots, and I was very happy.
From here we have to take on Ekateringburg, they have the number 1 seed and we have the number 5. Of course the odds are against us with that, but each time that we played them it was a pretty close game so it will be interesting to see how it plays out. We are back home now and I am in my bed resting, I intend on doing this the rest of the day to give my body the proper rest that it needs, and we are back at in the morning.
That's all for now, I will keep you posted on how things turn out.
Talk to you later!
