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.
