I knew yesterday was going to be a little different. You see the kids were off of school for a teacher workday and I was watching them while I teleworked. Before Willy left for work in the morning, we had made plans for all of us to meet for lunch near his work. Around lunch time, I called everyone together and we headed out. As we were walking out the door, I saw a news alert on my phone that said someone had won the Boston Marathon. I really didn't give it much thought since I'm not a runner and didn't know anyone running. So when a few hours later I saw there had been an explosion at the finish line, I was confused. I thought the race was over hours earlier.
I turned on the television and my heart just starting aching. It just brought back all those horrible feelings from 9/11. Living in this area, the thought crosses my mind several times a week that something like this could happen around here easily AND now it has happened in Boston.
This picture literally breaks my heart
It's just so overwhelming. Be strong Boston. You are in our prayers.
